Sky: no. Brands are very powerful. It used to be possible to find acid or electric branded MoD and the like. Yeah, they were not useful against Morgoth and a few other monsters. So what? It does huge...

While the gloves did indeed cause the level to spiral out of control, there is nothing fundamentally wrong with using them. However, there were other problems with that character:

Calris is a weak endgame weapon. As such, you want to use it with a ring of damage. Feagwath doesn't have a whole lot of HP. He should go down pretty quickly if you optimize for damage. Vecna is...

Speed absolutely maxes out. For a melee character, anything over 30 hasted (base 20) is better off being exchanged for damage and armor. (Note that base speed is adjusted for encumbrance, so you may...

In principle, it could also grant zero blows, or possibly 1 every 3 turns, with fractional blows. Yeah, that is one of the worst ever artifacts...except for a certain sword that gives -10 speed.

I watched a little at DL 56. Crazy fight with ranger chieftain, sorceror, berserker, ancient blue and green dragons, nearly at once. You probably should have died then (and did get down to 48HP.)

Unless you are at speed +20, GMM can take you from stunned to knocked out in a single player turn. At normal speed, he can knock you out in a single turn. Very bad news..

Disenchantment max damage is 500, or 428 with resistance (which you definitely need when fighting the big R.) And yes, you will want both immunities.
