The Top Ten

1 Master of Puppets - Metallica Master of Puppets - Metallica
2 A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater A Change of Seasons - Dream Theater
3 Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth Dante's Inferno - Iced Earth
4 Alexander the Great - Iron Maiden Alexander the Great - Iron Maiden
5 War Pigs - Black Sabbath
6 The Odyssey - Symphony X The Odyssey - Symphony X
7 Stargazer - Rainbow Stargazer - Rainbow

Everything is epic here: epic drum intro, epic vocals, epic solo and that epic riff. The groove in the riff makes it sound like The Bolero of metal music. And Ritchie Blackmore played it like the metal Maurice Ravel.

Oh yes, an epic outro, too. This song is an epic metal masterpiece start to finish. - Metal_Treasure

The Contenders

11 Cemetery Gates - Pantera Cemetery Gates - Pantera
12 Child In Time - Deep Purple Child In Time - Deep Purple
13 Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian Sacred Worlds - Blind Guardian

Impressive symphonic metal - can't get more epic than this. Outstanding music, vocals and performance in general - one of the most beautiful and powerful pieces I've ever heard. - Metal_Treasure

14 One - Metallica One - Metallica
15 Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden Hallowed Be Thy Name - Iron Maiden
16 Phantom Of The Opera - Iron Maiden Phantom Of The Opera - Iron Maiden

This is my fave epic song by Maiden. Love both versions (Paul and Bruce) but maybe prefer Bruce's rendition from the Live After Death album - because it's faster. - Metal_Treasure

17 Cemetary Gates - Pantera Cemetary Gates - Pantera
18 Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden
19 Shogun - Trivium Shogun - Trivium
20 Morphine Child - Savatage

A hidden gem - all preconditions for being unnoticed: the band is underrated in general, and this awesome piece came out in 2001, which was way after their relative peak in 1990-1992. - Metal_Treasure
