    Extreme - The Truth songs from their disc 'III Sides to every Story'
    Conception - Soliloquy
    Circus Maximus - Glory of the Empire & Mouth of Madness

    I'm a bit biased towards Circus Maximus and Seventh Wonder, but here are a few that are at the top of my list:
    1. Circus Maximus- Mouth of Madness...........Actually the whole Isolate album is EPIC!!!!!!!!
    2. Seventh Wonder-Devil's Inc.
    3. Beyond Twilight-For the Love of Art and Making (Especially Micheal's vocal parts)
    4. Queensryche- London and I Will Remember......Might not qualify as epics in terms of length, but they are so atmospheric!
    5.Circus Maximus- Glory of the Empire+
    6. Communic- At Dewy Prime
    7. Iced Earth-Dante's Inferno
    8. Iced Earth-Damien
