I still enjoy the last releases by bands like Grave, The Crown, Krisiun, Immolation, Vastum, Jungle Rot and Asphyx.

My regular listens too. I have tried but could never get into Gorguts, not even a little like you.
The thing with the new Behemoth is it's taking Marduk and going forward. It's making Marduk science Black Metal and adding melody, and super cool vocals.
I don't think it's the flavor of the week but will come into vogue maybe when your grandchildren start to get into metal many years from now. It is actually metal for a future time and does not even fit into today's market as such. IMO.Black Metal has never been trendy and has never been apart of this earth. It is it's own separate thing unto itself.
Some folks need Black Metal to be trendy and maybe will wear Dark Funeral T-Shirts to the mall. Those are not real fans but kids rebelling to society and their parents.
I wonder too, what Behemoths next album will be like and if they will continue to explore their new found sound?
