Death Doom Bands with beautiful guitar and instrumentation

For Death / doom, nothing has ever surpassed diSEMBOWELMENT - Transcendence into the peripheral, imo of course. (Also recommend, last few are funeral doom/ death metal):
Autopsy - Severed Survival
Evoken - Antithesis of Light
Rigor Sardonicous - Principia Sardonica
Winter - Into Darkness, Eternal Frost
Thergothon - Stream from the heavens
seconding Rapture, Thergothon, Ahab, Morgion, Slumber, Esoteric, Evoken, Disembowelment, and Skepticism

probably stating the obvious, but early My Dying Bride when they still had violins.

Black Sun Aeon

Lethian Dreams


Shape of Despair

The Sins of Thy Beloved

Void of Silence

Cannot recommend void of silence enough, industrial blackened doom/death that featured Alan from Primordial and now features one of the guys from The Axis of Perdition.

not Doom/Death anymore, but Orphaned Land and Virgin Black are semi relevant as well.
