Pick an artist.
Go to their page. Write down their top similar artist that is not already in your list. Click through to that artist's page. Repeat.

I was pretty familiar with the first dozen bands, and then the list veered into "Old school traditional Doom-metal from Finland" (Minotauri) and I started to get interested. Where was this path leading? The next five bands on the list were also obscure doom-metal bands and I was really thinking highly of this list.
Then it took a turn into stoner-rock at #21. I am kind of sick of stoner-rock.
I got lost in the haze here, going around in circles. All of the bands referring to each other. I had to go to the 8th most similar artist at #41 and the 10th at #42.
But that finally got me out of that genre. And on the other side of psych/desert/stoner section are some new doom/stoner bands.
Who knows where it would go from there...
