My love of Epic Music


I will be the first to admit that I am a nerd for epic things. I love an over-the-top bit of action. Bombastic music. Heavy Metal.

Metal filled this need in me. Dragons, demons, warriors, and wizards all could be found there. Cheesy, epic goodness. Metal acts from Europe have been great in filling that need for epic music.

Within Temptation has some great music. Check out this song featuring guest vocalist, Xzibit.

Nightwish from Finland has been perfecting their big sound over the years. Ghost Love Score is a perfect example.

But this is an anime blog, no?

Ok. So what are the OPs and EDs that are most epic?

I would be remiss if I did not include the Attack on Titan OP first.

Only My Railgun by Fripside is pretty a pretty big sounding bit of electronica.

But for me lately it is the Guilty Crown OP by Supercell. I can’t get enough of this song.

Do yourself a favor and listen to the full version. Turn it up. Bask in the awesome!

    I would like to see a playlist of ALL of the Attack-on-Titan themes. Openings, endings with both Japanese originals and English covers.
    One of my favorite openings is the theme from “Samurai 7″ . If you can find the full version it is worth snagging.”Unlimited” by Aikawa Nanese.

    Youtube had a great full HD versions with some super clips from the series. They took that one off, but here is at least the song.

    My son he said he could probably get that playlist of those Attack on Titan songs. 🙂

    Nice list. 🙂 I like your choices. But too bad, Guilty Crown wasn’t as good as its OP made it seem.

    Yeah. I am just about done with it. It had a bunch of potential, but didn’t live up to it unfortunately.
