"Roguelike" is an entire genre and most games in the genre feature permadeath, though it's sometimes optional. So there's the classic roguelikes like NetHack, ADOM, Crawl, etc. There's also modern roguelikes like Caves of Qud, Dungeonmans, and Tangledeep. But then there's also the "roguelite" genre, which mixes permadeath and procedural generation with other kinds of gameplay besides bump-combat dungeon exploration. For example, Spelunky and Catacomb Kids are roguelite platformers. Nuclear Throne and Cryptark are roguelite twin-stick shooters. Crypt of the NecroDancer is a roguelite rhythm game. Teleglitch is roguelite survival horror. And Transcendence is roguelite space inertial combat and exploration.

I recommend all of the above games I named, but especially NecroDancer and Cryptark. That should keep you busy for a bit.
