Epic Metal

Epic metal, or epic heavy metal, is a stylistic variation/offshoot of traditional metal that incorporates elements of heavy metal and doom metal. Generally speaking, epic heavy metal is guitar driven, incorporating lengthy, meandering song structures and lyrics centered around fantasy, mythology, and history, and tends to be most heavily linked to traditional metal and doom metal. Despite not being a true subgenre in the actual meaning of the word, "epic metal" describes a fairly cohesive group of musically related bands to the point of being worth being using.
