Indisputably Epic

Alright, so I am a longtime fan of epic music. The time has now come for me to share the cream of the crop. The Epic-est of the Epic. Now, I realize that there are many 'epic' songs that I omitted, and much of this was intentional. I wanted to stick primarily to heart-racing percussive brassy music, so you won't find any Adagio for Strings on here. In fact, I don't think there's anything adagio at all!

Without further ado, I present (in no particular order) to you Indisputably Epic: A Playlist.

No intro to "Storm" by GY!BE? Whatever. I'll let it slide because you've got Bartok. He makes my tummy tingle. Plus "Navras" kicks more ass than a toilet with boots (I really wish I could say I thought up that simile).
