EPIC [ep-ik]: adjective

  1. Noting or pertaining to a long poetic composition, usually centered upon a hero, in which a series of great achievements or events is narrated in elevated style
  2. Heroic; majestic; impressively great
  3. Of unusually great size or extent

Iron Maiden has always included at least one epic song on each of their 15 studio albums. The following is a subjective list that I put together which ranks the top 20. Credit Steve Harris and the rest of the band for creating some of the best epic metal songs of all time.
