If most of us were asked to envision a scene of a mythical ancient battle or an extraordinary plight of a fantasy hero it would almost certainly be accompanied by an epic tune playing in our heads. Epic music, once popularly known as trailer music and associated primarily with movie soundtracks, has seen a rise in popularity in recent decades, partially fuelled by the growth of the gaming industry. Epic music today has evolved into an independent musical style that has even attracted a considerable following among the general audience, with some record labels and music producers now specializing exclusively in producing scores of composers working in this genre.

Where to use epic music

Besides movie trailers that it is primarily associated with it, royalty free epic music can be used in

  • content aimed at YouTube and Vimeo

  • ads and promotional videos

  • radio shows

  • films and television series

  • computer games

  • theatre plays

  • live events (sports, ceremonies etc.)

History and origins

While epic music often incorporates a wide variety of musical genres, this style of music is usually classical in its presentation as epic music largely draws on the heritage of classical composers, like Sibelius, Grieg or Shostakovich. Accordingly, melodic lines and harmonizations that are typical for this style are, to a large degree, derived from symphonies, operas and other classical pieces.

What makes music "epic"?

Its sound evokes themes of grandeur and heroism. It can be adventurous, dramatic, mysterious or majestic. There are several features typical for epic music:

  • recognizable "epic" harmony changes

  • dramatic, powerful, uplifting tone and timbre

  • predominant use of strings and horn sections

  • emphasis on higher and lower registers

  • periodic climaxes to highlight moments of tension and relief

Royalty free music search

Naturally, producing a dedicated recording of an orchestra, with subsequent mixing and mastering of audio material, is far beyond reasonable in the vast majority of cases. Using a random track found online, on the other hand, can have negative consequences, such as account suspension or even legal action by the rights owners. Also, finding royalty free epic music could be harder than one might imagine since all movie and game soundtracks are copyrighted by major studios.
