Celtic frost is one of those bands that EVERY metalhead has to hear! To mega Therion (1985) was a lot different at the time than anything else. While my favorites are morbid tales and monotheist, I own and love their entire catalog. Even cold lake (widely considered a huge mistake and nothing like any of their other stuff) is fun from a historical point of view. Tom warrior is known for his colossal riffing and pioneering in the death growl
Hellhammer (1981 ish) are now being recognized as one of the major influences on black metal, although their music is nothing like black metal LOL the lyrical themes and atmosphere are very sinister especially compared to the silliness of venom at the time
I only own one Apollyon sun album (sub) it's more industrial metal with classic tom warrior riffing
