I'm a bit surprised no one has mentioned Glen Cook's The Black Company series -- particularly the first three (The Black Company, Shadows Linger, and The White Rose) along with The Silver Spike, which branches from and sits to the side of the main chronology.

Although Mr. Cook's writing style is very different than Mr. Martin's, some of the same elements are there. The books are gritty, full of moral conflict and the dirty underside of human nature, and, like A Song of Ice and Fire, largely free of clear "good" and "evil" sides (with a few notable exceptions).

[I think some of the later works in the series lose a little focus and don't move along as well, but ultimately they're all worthwhile.]
