Amazing post dude, I can’t even begin to wrap my head around all the awesomeness therein!!!

All I can say for now is that the 90s is without a doubt my favorite decade for music, of any genre. I will also go on record as to say that 1997 is my favorite year for metal, bar none. The amount of all time classics released that year is just staggering. On top of the amazing stuff you’ve already mentioned, I’ve gotta throw these into the mix....
Nokturnal Mortum - Goat Horns
Summoning - Dol Guldur, Nightshade Forests
Empyrium - of moors and misty fields
Esoteric - the pernicious enigma

The empyrium and both summoning releases are easily in my top 10 metal/related of all time. The esoteric and NM are pretty godly as well, though having now heard the pristine 2016 remixed versions of both, can’t really see myself jamming the originals ever again. Still, I can’t take away from the initial impact of the originals

And while we’re at it, I’d also add
Symphony x - DWoT
Royal hunt - paradox
Lacrimosa - stille
I’d be hard pressed to call two of these metal, but 3 more classics in my book nonetheless
