I don't think they are the craziest, but I always liked Children of Bodom. 
Their singer is amusing. No matter how old he gets he still sounds like angsty teenager. Never cared for their older albums (too melodic)  but more recent ones are somewhat listenable.

If someone wanted some crazy Finnish Metal I'd recommend the more occult ones. Enochiant Crescent, Behexen and the like. Or Sotajumala, Deatchain or Torture Killer if you prefer Death Metal. Or Impaled Nazarene just for the lyrics.

What's wrong with melodic?  In fact there melodies and their harmonies are the reasons I like them, their singer notwithstanding.

Too neoclassical. For some reason I don't usually like melodic metal outside of progressive bands like Ayreon. Been listening some bands but never got passionate like I used to be over more extreme varietes. Melodies are fine in other genres but don't care too much about them in Metal.

The Enochian - Sielunsyöjä

I really like the vocalist. One rarely hears anything that would actually sound scary despite various growling, shouting and shrieking being so common in Metal.

The Wounded Kings- Visions in Bone

Sadly, the final album of this wonderful English doom band, as they have broken up. It is a very worthy coda to their career.

The cover of the album have the symbol (mantra) of the chaos magic which is pure witchcraft. I know this from the time when I was readed about chaos magic, before I even start to fasting, reading the Bible or praying.
1. A mantra is not a symbol.
2. The chaos magick sigil is a spoked circle; this one is a sideways crescent, as it's missing the top half.
3. The band are openly pagan.
4. Their music is still awesome.

In the local site/forum where I was reading on my own language it was the mantra that was used by this symbol.
I think they say it was also the symbol or something like that of chaos.
That is good, that their music is good.

Here is an orthodox chant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=__aKKrtk2-s

A mantra can't be a symbol because mantras are not visual.

A "Mantra" (/ˈmæntrə, ˈmɑːn-, ˈmʌn-/ (Sanskrit: मंत्र);) is a sacred utterance, a numinous sound, a syllable, word or phonemes, or group of words in Sanskrit believed by practitioners to have psychological and spiritual powers.
