None of the songs posted as of writing this message are based nor share a title with "Epics". Please actually read the post and understand what I'm trying to accomplish.



Well, I would imagine there are a plethora of threads containing what modern culture defines as "epic" songs, but this one is different.

In this one, you list songs that either share a name, lyrical base, or convey the message of, epic poems. EG The Odyssey, Paradise Lost, The Aeneid, The Iliad, ect.

Can't think of any? Then post saying you don't, because it bumps my thread up to first page.

Anyways, I can only think of a couple, both ironically from the same band.

The Odyssey- Symphony X

Paradise Lost- Symphony X


Also, there was a coalition of progressive bands that made an entire album called "The Odyssey" or "The Greatest Tale Ever Told", and one of the bands that played was Glass Hammer. However, I can never completely download it for some reason. If anybody knows a working link for a download, PM me


Anyways, hop to it.

These aren't "epics", they're concept albums....

Not all of them are concept albums, actually. Like Blood on Ice is an actual epic.

Pain of Salvation's Remedy Lane is also an epic of sorts.

1. Noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style: Homer's Iliad is an epic poem.


That is what TS meant with "epic". Most of the songs posted aren't even close.

I know Manowar wrote a thirty minute long song about the Iliad.

This what you're talking about, TS?

EDIT: Song title is Achillles, Agony, and Ecstacy in Eight Parts
If you are reading this, then it would seem that you're either too busy with this sig with nothing in it to finish reading the thread or there are no posts left in the thread to read.

You guys need to lrn2read.

That said, I don't know of any songs based off of "epic" poems.

Cradle of Filth album Damnation and a Day is based off Paradise Lost. Man, I thought I was hot shit listening to that when I was 14... how I have changed.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.
