They have a really epic sound, plus they're Christian, which lends an extra-epic feel when they start singing about how amazing God is.

"On Eagle's Wings" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lF5x2XzLSzk
This song, especially the bridge, just "lifts my spirit to the sky above to fly away, to fly on eagle's wings...."

"Laying the Demon to Rest" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B24j9fnkxo4&feature=related
Very intense and makes me think of fantasy battles with swords and blood and demons - and of course there's also the deeper meaning that I love ^_^

You know speaking of Theocracy... one of my favorite songs of theirs wasn't even on the CD (it's bonus song on a japanese release or something like that)... but it's pretty epic [url=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsUDdgUHrZo"]The Wages of Sin[/url]. I found it by accident once browsing youtube.

Protectors of Earth - Two Steps from Hell

Just listen to this magnificant song and you'll understand how I think of our Lord and His magnificance with His Angels protecting our beautiful planet. It's just so...so...good. It's unexplainable I get shivers!

Theocracy is amazing!!! :D
Two Steps From Hell - Tristan <--(click)
We have been here long enough to know
That we are all brothers and sisters in Christ,
So if you are in need of help,
We shall give you His advice.

May God add his blessings upon you,
That you will live this day and forever,
And when He comes to the earth again,
We will all go together...

Into Heaven for Eternity...

Inception's "Mind Heist" (just another reason why you should watch the movie)


Gurren Lagann's "Libera Me from Hell"

Where an Eidolon, named night, on a black throne reigns upright.

:wow!: Dude, that was hardcore. Love it!

I've been thinking for a while now that this thread was missing something, and I couldn't figure out what. Then it hit me - Lord of the Rings!!!! :dance: Howard Shore sure knows how to make epic fantasy music, and here are the tracks from the three soundtracks that stand out the most to me in terms of epic-ness:

A Knife in the Dark - combining the Nazgul and Isengard themes, great bad-guy music

The Bridge of Khazad-dum - the Fellowship theme mingled with danger/battle music, from the battles with the Moria orcs and the Balrog (oh, and some good Dwarf chanting too XD)

Forth Eorlingas - the Rohan and Fellowship themes worked into epic battle music from Helm's Deep, with lots of heroic cavalry moments

The Ride of the Rohirrim - from when the Rohirrim come to help out the Gondorians, more cavalry charges XD

The End of All Things - positively the most epic thing I've ever heard, from when Frodo and Sam finally reach the Crack of Doom itself
You can find out things about the past that you never knew. And from what you've learned, you may see some things differently in the present. You're the one that changes. Not the past.
