1. Jethro Tull - Thick As A Brick
2. King Crimson - In The Court Of The Crimson King

The Epics (Because I Don't Think Pyramid God Is Coming Back)

My version of The Epics (Best Songs Over 10 Minutes) only this time it's more The Epics (Songs Over 10 Minutes) because we kept griping to PG and he wouldn't update his list. According to his profile he hasn't been on in... 371 days. So I thought "Hey, why not do it myself?"
Arranged by time. If you feel or know a song should be on here, let me know. I'm a mainstream fag, so I only listen to the popular stuff. I might have missed some bands.

1. Be'lakor - Stone's Reach
2. Kalisia - Cybion
3. Sun Of The Blind - Skullreader
4. Nile - Ithyphallic
5. Nightwish - Once

1. Potentiam - Bálsýn
2. Grabnebelfürsten - Dynastie Oder Wie Man Herrschaft Definert
3. Deathspell Omega - Si Monumentum Requires, Circumspice
4. Sigh - Hangman's Hymn- Musikalische Exequien
