also known as E.P.M, is a style brought about when melodic metal fuses with extreme metal(speed and power metal fused). the first origin of epic power metal came from the band "Dragonforce", when experts didnt have a way to describe their combonation of ambiant breakdowns, break-neck solos, heavy gallops, melodic singing, and seemingly undefinable lyrics. most epic power metal songs include a great amount of speed, organization, wide octive vocals, twin guitar solos, heavy bridges, and usually from 6 to 10 mins long. and are meant to give one the sense of epicness or disbelief.
