Mainly I want epic length songs that have a large degree of riffs/melodies/different sections, at minimum 6 minutes.

Now to the subjective part, I hate randomness, I don't want to hear bands change riffs at the drop of a hat just to be showy, I don't want stuff that just crams in as much different ideas as possible in 15 minutes, I want songs that create some sort of experience, or journey, or atmosphere.

Really there does not have to be an insane amount of riffs but definitely more than 3-4 riffs drawn out over ten painfully boring minutes like a lot of these atmoblack/DSBM bands do. I don't mind repetition(see Dead Hills and Vothana) but I want some definite change, enough to feel like a song with movements and climaxes and change of feeling and not just a generic static landscape painting.

Examples:

Setherial- In the Still of a Northern Fullmoon

Dead Hills- Wells
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ASr0bm5Wvc0

Trimonium- Choose the Weapon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2HNHinsz2U

Gnome- La Foret
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L2dByQCBsCA

Vothana- Hoang Gia
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hsark4B51lU

Graveland- Sacrifice For Honour
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mgxpavClxH8

Strid- End of Life
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Leknal7unck

Fullmoon- The Wolfish Initiation
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Thcc9jebw7s

Blood Incantation
The Chasm
Timeghoul
Volahn

All four bands typically compose songs that that are around or exceed the 6 minute mark, and are overflowing with riffs.

Cathedral - The Garden -27 minutes, doomy but also has a wide array of riffs and segments. A similar track I'd also recommend by them is the Voyage of the Homeless Sapien.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IkYWkVTbkiQ
Zandelle - Eradicated Existence, one of my favorite songs by them, a US power metal song with a whole bunch of kickass riffs and an epic narrative story about a bounty hunter.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CceAuT9z6uY
Sigh - Izuna, because you mentioned a lot of black metal you liked, I feel like this would be a good choice. It's chaotic, epic and spacey.
