No "Omg, lik teh dragonfrace!"

Im talking about power ballads, echoing-powerful vocals, vicious guitars, thundering drums.

A little screaming is okay, but no death metal or **** like that.

Songs with heavy chorus' are a plus.

In Keeping Secrets of Silent Earth:3 by Coheed & Cambria. After the re-intro, listen to that chorus chant. That's my definition of epic.

Guns N Roses is so overrated its not funny... but its opinions and a matter of taste maybe I just get annoyed by all the 13 year old Slash fanboys...

I'd say Estranged by Gnr or some of their new songs. Also Bon Jovi do a lot of ballads, check out Bed of Roses if you don't already know it and see if that suits your tastes.

Draconian has some pretty epic stuff, but I'm not sure how much you'd like them.
Kamelot
Sonata Arctica
Anberlin
Opeth
Sabbath
Pink Floyd
Dream Theater

There's more, but I can't be bothered going through my music library.
#24
Probably a bit more metal than you might be looking for (no clean vox, but they aren't screams or anything either)

But Insomnium has some VERY epic songs:

i.e. - Song of the Forlorn Son, In the Halls of Awaiting, Bereavement...

You're in the neighorhood of stuff I want,I'm not to keen on power metal, like hair metal ballads, ya know?


And


Slash is one of the greatest guitarists of all time, writing some of the most epic sounding solo's in metal.

And no, just because something is fast, that doesn't make it SUPER BROOTALZ EPIK

I'm not knocking Slash mainly cause he is amazing but seriously play something other than Sweet Child O' Mine in my local guitar shops... also I'd consider them hard rock, not metal... but thats up in the air...

Are you into Slash's Snakepit at all? Because "Back To The Moment" is a good ballad I thought. Richie Sambora makes some epic songs but they aren't really traditional, kinda dark and soulful with great guitar parts.

+1 Back and Forth again is also amazing, the solo at the end is one of my favourite ever.

And I would say just go listen to Chinese Democracy, especially Street of Dreams, There Was A Time, Catcher in the Rye, Sorry, Madagascar, This I Love and Prostitute. Amazing, amazing amazing stuff.

Oh, and ^, In a lot of record shops, Guns are listed under metal. Which I don't agree with either, but it's true. So he could be techincally classed as a metal guitarist.

Amon Amarth, though they are death metal.

Also, Painkiller. One of the best metal albums ever.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie,
Battening on huge seaworms in his sleep;
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
