Well, I'm looking for a bands that create vast and overwhelming cosmic experience (not SF themes), either by lyrical side or instrumental aspect of their music. I really want that desolate and magnificent cosmic atmosphere.

I must emphasize that I'm looking for a tech/brutal death metal acts like Obscura, The Faceless, Decrepit Birth or Neuraxis and that I'm pretty familiar with bands like Darkspace, Sirius, Limbonic Art, Odium and similar.

Hope I explained well :D

The world is indeed comic, but the joke is on mankind.

I don't see anything as desolate and magnificent as ambient doom like Until Death Overtakes Me, or Beyond Black Void. If I'd stick to your description, that's what I'd recommend.
Now, if you're specifically looking for something brutal and fast, doom isn't the way to go. I second Mithras, obviously. Maybe also Nocturnus' Thresholds?

The Russian band Dark Matter Secret released their debut this year that's instrumental tech-death, and totally has the immersive cosmic vibe you're looking for:

Although I do enjoy them, the bands you've suggested sounds like standard tech-death if you ask me. You should check out the label Unique Leader if you already haven't, as they pretty much have a monopoly on this type of sound.

Personally I would recommend Blood Incantation, Gigan, Bolzer, Wormed, and Artificial Brain. But they're very different sounding, and may not be your cup of tea at all.
