    Epic has a bit to do with length as well. I like songs that take time to build up, so here's some long ones over 7 minutes:

    Arc of Ascent - Redemption (basically all their songs are epic but this is my favourite)
    Budgie - Nude Disintegrating Parachutist Woman
    Budgie - Parents
    Creeping - Funeral Crawl
    Creeping - Temple of Graves
    Deep Purple - Lazy
    Diamond Head - Am I Evil
    Eagle Twin - Crow Hymn
    Looking Glass - Freya (also always epic but this is my favourite)
    Megadeth - When
    Mercyful Fate - Satan's Fall
    Metallica - ...And Justice for All
    Night Sun - Got a Bone Of My Own
    Stratovarius - Destiny

    These shorter ones are epic too though:

    Black Sabbath – Black Sabbath
    Razorwyre - Battleshark
    Rock Goddess - Heartache
    Slayer - Seasons in the Abyss
    Sticky Filth - Witch Hazel

    ... The bitter fights are what broke my heart
    The sleepless nights are the hardest part
    As weak as I am I still hope
    For some warmth from someone ...

    Being the Japan crazed guy I am, here's a few Japanese epics:
    X Japan - Art of Life (full version)
    Dirty Trashroad - Voices From the Dead
    Alhambra - Walkure
    Pageant - La Mosaique de la Reverie
    Gaisen March - The Beginning of Battle & Fighting Spirit March
    Galneryus - Angel of Salvation (full version)
    Musashi's entire album "宮本武蔵 Miyamoto Musashi"

    Japan also has some great super hot-blooded songs/musicians:
    JAM Project as well as a couple of their vocalists Masaaki Endoh and Hironobu Kageyama have done many epic theme songs like "Beat a Nail With Your Hammer", "The Gate of Hell", "Cha-La Head-Cha-La", "Kenzen Robo Daimidaler".
    Linked Horizon/Sound Horizon has many quality symphonic rock epics such as both of Linked Horizon's Attack on Titan themes, as well as others like Sound Horizon's "Yoiyami no Uta" from their album Marchen.
    Jimang; Sound Horizon's backing vocalist; deserves his own mention too, his songs "La Divina Tragedia -Makyoku-" and "Soseiten" are nuts.

    Some other epics I really like:
    Helloween - Halloween
    Kansas - Magnum Opus
    Rush - Xanadu
    Iron Maiden - Rime of the Ancient Mariner
    Turisas - Stand up and Fight & Battle Metal
    Nightwish - Ghost Love Score
