I will be going over the genres and subgenres you can find in my music playlist and general information about the playlist's content.
At the end I will be giving you some songs and artists examples, below specific categories of music type that you can find in my playlist.

Epic Battle Music Playlist
Cover Arts, Story Opening & Phases
This is my current cover art, some previous ones can be found lower.
The opening songs of my playlist are represented by this story-driven 3-line quote.
"He" refers to Starscourge Radahn. It is a permanent track in this story.
The playlist currently has 2 phases:
Phase 1 starts with the opening "Dare to Defy" (track #01)
Phase 2 starts with the Dissidia trailer (around track #40)
A part of "Dare to Defy" can be heard inside the trailer. Both are from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT.
Song count: 80+
Updates: Weekly, every Tuesday
Mostly prominent type of music:
Video game music (VGM)
Soundtracks (OST, scores)
Trailer, film & movie scores
Genres & Subgenres
Under the main genre of "Classical", almost every battle song in the playlist is performed by a full orchestra, giving that continuous intense and epic feeling.
I have an article about what Epic Music is, if you wish to dig deeper.
A large variety due to the very broad "Classical" main genre.
Orchestral, choral, instrumental and modern/neo classical are some notable subgenres.
Better in a mood section then unofficial subgenres, here is a list that defines what you will experience in my epic battle playlist:
Clash hybrid action
Power of Gods
