This isn't technically fantasy (doesn't fit into any genre that I can think of) but the only other series I like as well as I like ASOIAF is Stephen King's "Dark Tower" series. Not as much intrigue (although some in the middle books of the series), but def. violent, gritty, and will totally kill off main characters... and extremely well-written, well-plotted, awesome in every way.

I have a few suggestions that are good but differ from G.R.R.M.(no one writes quite like him).
Kate Elliott's Crown of Stars series. Seven books about 500 pages each. Well developed characters, plenty of twists, and its finished!
Joe Abercrombie's First Law Trilogy. Great developing characters, violent as hell, conspiracies, and a kind old wizard that will make you think twice about kind old wizards!
Greg Keyes' The Kingdon of Thorne and Bone. Plenty of plot twists, violence, and good guys getting screwed.

I'd love to suggest one of my own novels, Rys Rising: Book I. I like hard-hitting gritty fantasy too. Some readers have likened my style to GRRM in reviews at Goodreads. I am similar in that I have multi character sagas, but I make some characters likable and let them have some good times too.
