Part 1

We are epic, we are everywhere.
We hide in shadows, we give you nightmares.

We are your nemesis, we are a dynasty.
We cause diseases beyond imagination or dream.

We are drones we are drums.

We are darkness and power,
We are the roman emperor.

We are legend, we are ashes.
We are public at long last.

Part 2

We are epic, we are everywhere,
We have our classics, it's only fair.

We are invincible, it's no illusion,
We are the devil and the demon.

We shout our battlecry, hear our legacy.

We are the horror, the sky is our world.
We are as fast as sound as we fly.

We climb the volcano, witness our miracle,
We are the sun, we are the archangel.

We are the same, Who are we?

Hint

Most nouns are all related, Part 1 and 2 fit chronogically, a couple of stanzas are metaphors but not a lot of them. Either way to figure out the puzzle you have to find what links all of them. Also, you've very most likely encountered 'we' before without knowing. And check the tags.

  • $\begingroup$ Nice! there's also the album Legacy(2015 - Japan) and the album Sun(2014) (and another edition of Sun is set to release soon) - The answer I was expecting is the collaborative group though as many of those albums have as many songs written by someone else too. - Edit and I'll set as correct answer :) **Also all the titles in part 2 are the public albums $\endgroup$ – Spacemonkey Jun 26 '15 at 17:40

  • $\begingroup$ Fun fact, most western major events normally have a song or two from them in the openings or background. (like the Vancouver and London Olympics - the Superbowl - or not that long ago, press conferences at E3 - without mentioning the huge amounts of trailer music they've done for both movies and games) $\endgroup$ – Spacemonkey Jun 26 '15 at 17:58

Part 1 sounds like

vampires.

We are epic, we are everywhere.

Vampires are found in epic fantasy, and everywhere in horror novels.

We hide in shadows, we give you nightmares.

This bit is obvious.

We are your nemesis, we are a dynasty.

Vampires are the nemesis of humanity. "Dynasty" could refer to various fictional families of vampires, most notably the Cullen family of the Twilight series.

We cause diseases beyond imagination or dream.

"Diseases" as a metaphor for blood loss and death?

We are drones we are drums.

Not sure about this line.

We are darkness and power,

Classic vampire boast.

We are the roman emperor.

Sidorio, a vampire in the Vampirates series, encountered Julius Caesar while still a mortal, and used Caesar as a pseudonym on at least one occasion.

We are legend, we are ashes.

Vampires are legendary. Put one into sunlight and it gets burnt to ashes.

We are public at long last.

With the onset of "vampire fiction", vampires are suddenly very much in the public eye.
