Released: October 16, 2009 Genre: Symphonic metal, Power metal, Progressive metal Label: Nuclear Blast Number Of Tracks: 13 The breakthrough record "The Divine Conspiracy" was great, but gets crushed by "Design Your Universe," which is still Epica's best album.

Concerts in Columbia: Sept 18-24

Art Garfunkel - Intimate but awkward, pretentious but also pretty priceless, Art Garfunkel's recent stop at the Columbia Museum of Art contained as many flat notes as soaring ones.

Joseph Cramer, M.D.: The role of rocks in the Gaelic nations

There are so many rocks in Gaelic territories that everything is made from them: walls, roads, buildings, more walls, homes, roofs, castles - did I also mention walls - abbeys and monasteries all are rock solid?

In Quest for Success, Colleges Ask: What's Working?

But whether they're offering a first-year experience or a flipped classroom, how do they know if the programs are working?

Former Opeth Drummer Martin Lopez's Soen To Release 'Tellurian' In November [News]

As "Tellurian" makes plain, Soen is not concerned with the simple or the shallow; their musical journey takes an altogether more ambitious path, and the result is an expansive body of work, wrapped up in the stunning art of Mexican painter Jose Luis Lopez Galvan , that consistently challenges without being "clever-clever" or tough to enjoy. Produced by Platbarzdis, mixed by the legendary Grammy Award-winning David Bottrill and mastered at Bob Ludwig's Gateway setup in the U.S. by Adam Ayan , also a Grammy winner, "Tellurian" sees Soen taking the approach of their " Cognitive " debut and pushing the boundaries in terms of musical scope, the whole thing shot through with the confidence of a band who have found their voice.

Last month, a press release was circulated for a new album from the Thurston Moore-John Moloney collaboration Caught On Tape, and in that press release were a few lines of semi-comprehensible trolling from Moore on the musical genre called "black metal."
