can't think of any other stoner stuff, I'm not that big on it.
That Disembowelment is another one I may have included in my list if I heard it more. Once or twice on youtube doesn't cut it.

Besides, if you're gonna namedrop Eyehategod OP, you cannot leave out their "Take As Needed For Pain" album. It's a masterpiece.
Ah genre talk, the vampire that just won't die.

I think of it like this:

blues --> rock --> metal

Each spring out of the other organically and nonlinearly (i.e. the progression is more like a dynamic web than this simplification). Black Sabbath is sort of between rock and metal (stoner rock) and sludge is sort of between stoner rock and doom metal. So it is implied that sludge is included in the thread title of stoner / doom. In short they are similarities and differences between the genres and it is not cut and dried.

Also MHPF, I don't include repeats on these sorts of lists. I just put in my fave / the one I think is best. I agree the first three Eyehategod albums are comparable. I think Take as Needed for Pain is actually my least favorite of the three.
