Epic definition: 'to be heroic in grandeur or scale'. Sorry to pop your bubble folks, but Tool epitomise the dictionary definition of the word 'epic'. All the rest is just wishful fanboy thinking. These guys own every band on here for intelligence, ability, grandeur, and scale. The only thing more epic than Tool is the decade-long wait for another bloody album. The Gold Standard.

31Between the Buried and MeBetween the Buried and Me is an American progressive metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina. Formed in 2000, the band consists of Tommy Giles Rogers, Jr.

Because every song and album and ep is epic in length, scale, and ambition. Unparalleled metal.

32Virgin Steele

A somewhat better version of Manowar, embodying the same Epic Metal sort of concept, with crushing guitars, double bass, keyboards, screaming lyrics about battle and glory, etc. Check them out, "Invictus" is a pretty good album.

Blind Guardian are #1 for me though
