What is Epic music?
Epic music is also called heroic music. It is a genre of modern classical music that has distinct features.
Epic music can have an impact on person’s mental attitude. Such music inspires person, gives a positive attitude, and touches the depths of the human soul. You can exhaust positive and optimistic vibes by listening to epic music.
It is deep, beautiful, atmospheric, rhythmic, powerful and inspiring music.
Initially, epic music was created for movie trailers and computer games, and then there were musical groups that create music of this genre for the masses. The best representatives are such musicians as Hans Zimmer, Two Steps From Hell, Immediate Music, Epic Score, Brand x Music, Audiomachine, Position Music, etc.
The first companies producing music for trailers, which later became producers of epic music, were established in the 1990s and American company Immediate Music became one of the first since 1993. Since then and until 2010, many albums and singles have been created. However, they were available to clients of companies and the film industry only. So far, a few of these albums have been officially or informally released to the public via Internet platforms. In 2005-2010, some composers became famous for their songs, which were presented at special events such as the Olympic Games and many trailers.
