Top 50 Epic Songs (10+ Minutes)

My top 50 favourite tracks that are 10 minutes or greater. The list probably changes order depending on my mood, but I'm pretty happy with this one. I have left out songs from some big prog rock bands like Rush, Eloy and Pink Floyd. I didn't want to limit each band to 1 song as many of them have far too many "epic" tracks to ignore.

1. Helloween - Keeper Of The Seven Keys Part II
2. Lost Horizon - A Flame To The Ground Beneath
3. Virgin Steele - Invictus
4. Iced Earth - Burnt Offerings
5. While Heaven Wept - Vast Oceans Lachrymose

IMAAAAGINATION! =3

My favorite element about music is probably atmosphere. My mind is a lazy, albeit adventurous, asshole that likes to take vacations whenever it can. And what better than the surprise mental adventures that music takes you on? SHUT UP. SHUT UP. Nothing is better. Whether I'm whisked away on the wings of a dragon, sitting around a campfire with a group of vikings just before battle, wandering around a haunted castle, or floating around FUCKING SPACE, I love these adventures. Yes. Yes, I do. And here are my favorite albums that have incredible atmosphere for me to get lost in. (No particular order)

1. Bal-Sagoth - Battle Magic
2. Arcturus - The Sham Mirrors
3. Green Carnation - Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness
4. Rhapsody Of Fire - Dawn Of Victory
5. Les Discrets - Septembre Et Ses Dernières Pensées
