Katatonia, Novembre, Fen, The Morningside, Kauan, Forest of Shadows, and The Fall of Every Season should keep you more than satisfied.

None of them sound exactly like WoY, but their modern works can be compared to Kat/Novembre with the whole progressive-ish doomy alt-metal stuff. Fen has that "nature/pagan" feel and play a mix of atmo-black and post-rock. The Morningside is probably the closest in terms of similar sound. Kauan is a mix of Fen and The Morningside. Forest of Shadows is... just awesome. (Six Waves of Woe is a personal favorite.) And The Fall of Every Season is just some good melodic, accessible doom.

WoY's vocalist David Gold, is it? Sounds a lot like Peter Steele in my opinion, so even if it's not the same genre you should go ahead and check Type O Negative. If not, I guess Katatonia might do the trick.

The Flight of Sleipnir have this doomy, folky thing going. Not the same, but I imagine it caters to similar tastes.

The Flight Of Sleipnir is superior to the Paradise Lost wannabees called Woods Of Ypres. Really why listen to Woods Of Ypres, especially to IV and V when all they do there is recycle the same discarded PL riffs over and over again in every single song?

I can't believe you just said that...

I don't know how to respond. WoY and David Gold were amazing.
