Literally only thing I'm looking for in particular is lyrics in ancient languages (ancient greek, latin etc)

Preferably black, death, and doom metal for evil/mystical atmosphere

Surprised to see no ones mentioned Nazgul yet. Symphonic black metal sung in Latin. Shame they only made the one full-length.
Youtube: show


Ildra are another great example. All their lyrics are in old English. I started learning it myself after hearing the album.
Youtube: show


From what I remember, Forefather had a few songs in old english too, though I don't know which ones.

Bands that sing in unusual languages are great but they never seem to last for all that long.

Not the specific genre you're looking for, but a lot of Eluveitie's music is in Gaulish.
