I think of necromantic/horror stuff like Denial Of God. King Diamond is one of the main inspiration for the DOG guys in aesthetics, lyrics, mood etc. Anything else in that vein? Please avoid recommending COF and other cheesy things.

Bewitched from Chile comes to mind.

Never listened to this band, but I'll check them out, thanks. Anything else? Personally I can't think of any, but what I heard Tearstained/Night Conquers Day are similar to what I looking for. I should check those bands out as well.

Terror Of The Trees, though probably not exactly what you're looking for. Some of the solos got that KD-vibe to it:

And definitely Tearstained as you mentioned.

Night Conquers Day is great (the second album especially) but I don't really get the full KD vibe from them. Definitely an influence but that's about it.

Bewitched from Sweden as well, but I always thought they sucked. Retro-crap.

I second Tearstained/Night Conquers Day! The former has definitively a strong MF/KD-influence (also Bathory), but the latter was actually the better band (as noted, especially the 2nd album!).

BTW, is the guy behind these projects still active?

The bands that I most strongly associate with the "Mercyful Fate"-branch of the BM family three are:

Master's Hammer
Mortuary Drape
Root
Negative Plane
Tearstained

These bands don't necessarily copy the riff-fest approach and winding structures of Mercyful Fate but show a reliance on more classic metal riffing than typical BM, less frantic drumming, and perhaps have a slightly theatrical feel to them.

Going a bit further afield an argument could be made for including:
Grand Belials Key
Black Magic
Mystifier

Perhaps even some of the Greek bands, but then we're starting to stretch it.

Their first cd sounds like norwegian black metal + Candlemass. The second one, Dragonflight, is pure Mercyful Fate + Candlemass worship + norwegian black metal. Good shit!

Eidomantum is a band I've been meaning to check out for years. This may be the impetus I need!

In Solitude (Swe) have a Mercyful Fate vibe in their music, at least to my ears.
