    I wanted to see if anyones own band have epic long songs that you'd like to share. I know some musicians are not a big fan of it, but then there other musicians and fans who don't mind it or love it to death as long as its interesting.

    I want to your hear/see your stuff, so please share.

    I'll start first with my bands (Color of Aum) 10 minute epic long song that we perform on a regular basis. To make this process easier for some who don't have a lot of time to listen to the whole thing, I outlined what parts are solos since we love solos aye?

    Intro riff
    Surfing intro riff
    verse
    transition
    chorus
    verse
    transition
    chorus
    chunky break
    4:44, first solo at :5:01
    7:59 2nd solo
    8:41 3rd solo

    9:39 Monstrous ending

    Enjoy!



    Oh and if you like a combination of clean vocals. here you go.

    Here's a song from my band, Eyeless.

    Very epic, oriental song. I wanted the feel of being lost in the desert. I think I got it! Unfortunately I do not have live videos of this one, but we performed it a couple of time life.

    No videos, but we have three 8 1/2 minute songs, one 9 1/2 minute song, and were currently writing a 20 minute song.

    "Everything Will Be Okay"! I've seen it called post-black metal, shoegaze, doom metal, but at its core I still think it's classical.
    Pt. 1

    Pt. 2

    Pt. 3


    First real recording, all Pod, general newbness, etc, so it has mass mix problems, but compositionally, it's solid -- 17 minute sonata, solos, double solos, triple solos, classical thematic organization, blah blah blah. Can't wait to redo it right! :pickle: Gonna be a bitch to do live but it's probably with a whole lot of work and decent volume levels.

    Not that I'm an Auguryfag (don't look at my nickname xD) but this is a pretty good song.

    Who summoned me?

    Firth by Kurkkuviipale on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    7 minute long so it's not really long, has a little epic feeling to it though.

    Waka Waka by Kurkkuviipale on SoundCloud - Create, record and share your sounds for free

    11 minutes 30 seconds. Epic, not too repetitive imo, has a certain theme to it though.

    No live performances yet. Thought it would be fine if I posted them here as everyone else did.

    Hope you like 'em.

    Well yea, I have some principal issues with the whole "like before you can know what you're liking" -thing.

    The song is cool, it's just not my thing so I guess I'm not the one speaking objectively of it. It has got potential on its own genre for sure. :)

    Here's an 8 minute jawn I just wrote. Repetitive but that's the point of this particular tune.

    My doom band has a 30 minute (or thereabouts, varies depending on how long the jammed out ending lasts, it's usually probably 35-40) long depressing monstrosity but we've yet to record it, unfortunately.

    All my other bands are grind or punk based and don't exactly feature many lengthy numbers... :lol:
