How many of you like those epic. long, over 10 minutes long songs? smile.gif
I am a big fan of those if they're done properly.

With 10 min length, it's easy to bore the listener, but this song is a perfect example how to make an EPIC song which gets better each time you listen to it!

Blind Guardian... pure ART.

I love long and epic songs. This one I am posting is maybe not epic in the sense that you guys posted but it still is so great. I love what comes after 9:42!

I'm a sucker for long songs. I've always been a believer that you can rarely express yourself properly in anything less than six minutes. I don't care about the genre, just think that long things give so much more of a chance to explore themes - musically or lyrically or just from a plain, jam aspect.

One of my faves of all time, my vote would go to this one:
This is so long, you might want to make sure you go to the bathroom and stock up on snacks before you press the "play" button.

Sadly just rock band video: Part 1 & 2, because the song was too long I guess.



If you are just interested in guitar, check out the solo at the beginning of the part 2. Just one of many awesome solos <3

The Oddyssey is really a magnificent song. I never really listened to Symphony X but this is top-notch! Will have to check them out more.
