    There's a lot of great 90s rock, but more epic? :D Maybe some Blind Guardian, At the Gates, Opeth, etc [emoji14]

    Yes, good bands, but I don't put their songs in the "epic" category. We're just using the word differently, which is cool :)

    I definitely put those bands at legendary status. Then again, everything near our hearts is legendary, isn't it? :)

    Yeah, they're legendary. Hard to explain what I mean by epic with respect to specific songs. I don't know...longer, certain themes, epic subject matter like Amon Amarth's Twilight of the Thunder God, or Blind Guardian's songs on what was basically their Silmarillion album, or Iron Maiden's Rime of the Ancient Mariner epic, or hell, Marillion's 18 or so minute epic Grendel, which may be more epic than Snakes for the Divine :D

    Here's a 90s video. I think it was the 90s, but I wasn't really into the Beastie Boys. But I definitely respect them for this video.

    Sure SP... But first some 70's Tolkien music.







    The drums will shake the castle walls, the Ringwraiths ride in black.

    Try some Powerwolf! Or Van Canto. Both are pretty good, though I favor the first more.

    I agree totally, but there is nothing more epic than Manowar.

    Manowar - Gods of War - YouTube
    Manowar - Die With Honor - YouTube
    EPIC BATTLES manowar-sons of odin - YouTube

    Also, check out Sabaton. Not quite as epic as Manowar, but a close runner up. They sing about actual events and people in military history, including D-Day, the Fall of Berlin (two songs, one from the Soviet perspective, one from the German), the Falkland War, 101st Airborne at Bastogne, No Day, Audie Murphy, The Battle of Britian, Rourke's Drift, Thermopylae, and an entire album detailing the rise and fall of the Swedish Empire. Also, they pay tribute to other metal bands in Metalizer and Metal Crue, and have a cover of Twilight of the Thunder God, Feuer Frei, and For Whom the Bell Tolls. Personally, they're my favorite band. History class on steroids.

    Yes, another fan! Lol unfortunately my family doesn't favor my good tastes.

    And Van Canto was what got me into Powerwolf. But now a days I listen more to the Powerwolf music.

    I like any genre of music, so long as it is well done. This morning I'm listening to Volbeat. Yesterday it was Opeth, Nile, and Django Reinhardt (in the morning). :D

    Lol, mostly for me too, though I stick more closely to the fantasy music? Is that even a genre?

    Sometimes I feel wild and listened to Lindsey Stirling or Imagine Dragons. I use Pandora mainly, except for want to listen to a specific song at the moment and then I use you tube.

    Another good band is Les Friction.

    For fantasy-themes, have you heard this album? Classic.

    Some of them, Pandora occasionally will send them to me, that's how you get into new songs, like I got Van Canto from Irish, Powerwolf from Van Canto, Sabaton from Powerwolf and so on. I may return to western one of these days, lol I started there.
