Epidemia (''Эпидемия'') is a Russian PowerMetal band, formed in 1993. Their name means "Epidemic" in Russian, but their songs are mostly HeavyMithril, set either in [[Literature/TheSilmarillion Middle-earth]], or their own StandardFantasySetting.

Main gimmick of the band lies in their "metal opera", set in said fantasy setting. So far four of their studio albums were part of this story. Epidemia also sometimes carries out theatrical performances of this opera, complete with several guest vocalists.

Current members:
*Yury Melisov - guitar
*Dmitry Krivenkov - drums
*Ilya Mamontov - bass
*Dmitry Protsko - guitar
*Evgeny Egorov - vocals

Discography:
*''На Краю Времени'' (''On The Edge Of Time'') (1999)
*''Загадка Волшебной Cтраны'' (''The Quest Of The Magic Land'') (2001)
*''Эльфийская Pукопись'' (''Elven Manuscript'') (2004)
*''Жизнь в Cумерках'' (''Living In Twilight'') (2005)
*''Эльфийская Рукопись 2: Сказание На Все Времена'' (''Elven Manuscript 2: Saga For All Times'') (2007)
*''Дорога Домой'' (''Road to Home'') (2010)
*''Всадник из Льда'' (''The Ice Rider'') (2011)
*''Сокровище Энии'' (''Treasure of Enya'') (2014)
*''Легенда Ксентарона'' (''The Legend of Xentharon'') (2018)

!!The band provides examples of:
* BigBad: Subverted with Deimos, he's just a WellIntentionedExtremist and acts as DiscOneFinalBoss. Demon queen Minatrix, however, plays it straight.
** Later ice dragoness Blizzard takes over this role.
* BigGood: Gold dragons. Too bad that they are all in magical hibernation.
* TheCavalry: Dwarves in the final battle of second album.
* CueTheSun: In song "Saga For All Times" Desmond uses First God's staff to invoke this trope, destroy undeads and awaken gold dragons.
* DimensionalTraveler: Anyone who can cast "star portal" spell.
* HeelFaceTurn: Deimos, after being betrayed by blue dragons. It helps that he wasn't really evil in first place.
* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: "Gates", stationary devices that can send whole caravans to another world.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Deimos, Greek for "dread". Justified, since this name was a result of MeaningfulRename.
* APlanetNamedZok: We have Enya, a planet that is a home to protagonists, that has a reasonable name, and we have Xentharon. Bonus points for resembling the word "Xeno".
* StandardFantasySetting: let's see… Elves, dwarves, dragons (both good and evil), demons, and a song that's literally named "SwordAndSourcery". About the only part that is not standard are interplanetary travels, but their method is explicitly magical.
