I second RATTM's above comment, if you can't post productively get the fuck out of the thread.

As for the bands already mentioned, Pantera are hardly epic, maybe Cemetry Gates could be construed as epic, but even that's pushing it.
Same goes for Slayer, not really epic.

Iron Maiden and Sabbath i agree with 100% though, especially Maiden, i would love to see them live, truly epic!

My suggestion... 3 Inches of Blood?

basically all indie and rap. and you cant really diss that, because both of those types of music flow the best, and indie is probaly the most calming music to listen to. and some rap is super good.

Rap is bearly a form of music, its computerized beats with fast talking. Yes there is some really good rap, but just very little.
And I am a fan of mellow indie artists(Most of my solo projects consist of it).

But still, there is plenty of epic metal and plenty of metal that passes most everything else because of musical skill/progression.

I don't give a fuck about flow, metal by default is much more musically complex and talent-based than rap is. You don't even need to learn how to play an instrument, or know anything about music to write rap; it's poetry and weak poetry at that.

Yeah, mainstream rap is weak, but if you listen to good hip hop, not much compares.

Epic metal would be Sabbath, Maiden, Priest and yeah, that's all I listen to. Does Motorhead count?

I can say that... i think you're misinterpreting the meaning of the word epic.

Are you comparing hip hop (of any type) to professional poets?

Dio, Iron Maiden, and Judas Priest as mentioned before, and I think Mercyful Fate can be pretty epic too. And I know one song by Helloween, and it's epic.

Turisas. Seriously when I listen to them I want to bear my sword and shield then charge my battle opponents. That's pretty epic.

I haven't found good poetry that's come since William S Borroughs and the Beat Gen writers. Steer me oh oracle, let's get some names of poets that aren't you know, Yeats, Dickinson, Ginsberg, etc.
