    I recently listened to their new album King of the Grey Islands. Amazing. I was like hooked into them right from its first song. I haven't heard their earlier albums, but heard that they have a new vocalist. SOme say he is better than the previous guy.

    Anyway, any reccomendations for bands and albums similar to this?

    Mythological Cold Towers-Sphere Of Nebaddon
    Solstice(UK)-Lamentations
    Solstice(UK)-New Dark Age

    And I highly recommend that you check out Candlemass's first two albums, Epicus Doomicus Metallicus and Nightfall. The vocalists are different on these two albums though. Great epic doom metal.

    Well the newest album sounds quite alot like Krux so try them maybe. Also Solitude Aeturnus which Robert Lowe the current Candlemass vocalist also is the vocalist of.

    For other doom bands in the same vein maybe:

    Forsaken
    Memory Garden
    While Heaven Wept
    Doomshine
    Well of Souls(US)

    Also most bands Triton recommended, especially Scald and Solstice.

    Check out Trouble, Solitude Aeturnus, Doomsword, Saint Vitus, My Dying Bride, Swallow the Sun, Pentagram, and maybe Witchfinder General and Draconian. But if you're looking for a doom metal band better than Candlemass, you'll be disappointed. I'd reccomend exhausting Candlemass's catalog before even touching on those of most of these bands. My two favorite non-Candlemass doom metal bands are Doomsword and Draconian.

    ^Cool dude. Doomsword is indeed incredible. I have not heard Draconian though, so thanks for the tip there!
