ATTWS is shorter, but I bet it's far more epic (definitely more epic than the Agalloch at least, 'cause I know that song). Of course, I was convinced last round Pup or myself would take first place, and look how that turned out.  :lol I'm confident though!

Well, the instructions were to send some thing that you think is Epic.  Not an Epic per se. My song is only 10 minutes.

- Sending a song over 10 minutes long is a risky move.

But if every song is over ten minutes long, 10+ minute song wins anyway.  :biggrin:

I almost wrote "epic =/= long" when presenting the round, but figured I didn't want to be leading you guys to any specific direction. One thing I've love about this roulette is the sheer variety of the songs.

This time I guess I dug my own hole, but I still trust your judgement.  :lol

Asking for 'epic' on a Dream Theater music board is basically asking for long songs, to be fair. (My album roulette... dear god. I lost count of how many 10+ minute songs I sat through. Most of them not that good. Karmakanic and Frost* were always awesome though.)

I thought about some shorter epic songs, but again, go big or go home.

Am I the only one who sent a sub 10-min epic?

I think Parama sent Wildrunner

Car Mechanic?

Good point. If someone asked me to play something "epic" for them, I'd probably go for A Change of Seasons (if they don't know it) before going for anything shorter.

I thought about some shorter epic songs, but again, go big or go home.

That's the spirit!  :tup

Actually, no you're not.

See I understand that just because a song is long, doesn't mean it is going to be epic. Fortunately that Moonsorrow song is epic in every way. Not that Parama and Kattelox would agree with that........but they are wrong :neverusethis:

Dammit.  That's a winner right there.   

I could have sent any one of three songs and they would have been 5:48, 5:50, and 7:39.  I'm not at all convinced that "length" is necessary for "epic".

My song is inspired by the Iliad and the Aeneid and is basically a narration of the fall of Troy through Helen's perspective. That's epic as shit.  :lol
