The blank?

________ is a method of carving, or an object such as an engraved gem, item of jewellery or vessel made in this manner. It nearly always features a raised (positive) relief image; contrast with intaglio, which has a negative image. Originally, and still in discussing historical work, _________ only referred to works where the relief image was of a contrasting colour to the background; this was achieved by carefully carving a piece of material with a flat plane where two contrasting colours met, removing all the first colour except for the image to leave a contrasting background.

However, today the word is used more frequently in a different way altogether.

Id X and Y.

Band X was started by Y, an engineer at Polaroid with a BS and MS in Mech. Engg from MIT. Known for being an obsessive perfectionist, Y and X have released only 5 studio albums, but have sold over 50 million records globally. X held the record for the best selling debut till it was upstaged by GnR's Appetite for Destruction, 17 m copies. X remains to date a classic rock staple. X's eponymous debut was fully home produced by Y, despite pressure from the studio, only the vocals being added later by Brad Delp. However, the usual conflicts ensued, today, Y is the only member of the original lineup left. X had members from the same city where Y studied, frawn from both sides of the river.

The ongoing conflicts between the surviving band members spilled over to the 2008 Presidential campaign. A former band member appeared with Mike Huckabee and played with him at some rallies in New Hampshire. Huckabee used Z as a campaign theme song.

Y, a self-described "Obama supporter", sent an open letter to Huckabee in February 2008 stating that the band had never endorsed any candidate, and that he had never authorized the use of Z as Huckabee's theme song. Y made a point of saying that ONLY he actually played all the guitars on Z as well as most of X’s songs. Huckabee did stop using Z as a theme song.

Get the band X and the founder Y.

300th Post!

This band is said to have derived its name from the legendary lost city of X, the city of the moon, built by an ancient Egyptian civilization, 2000 years ago in the Wilbur Smith novel, Sunbird.
Another possible source is the 'Beautiful' Feast of X (or X Festival), an Ancient Egyptian festival which was celebrated annually in Thebes, an ancient city in Egypt.

David Lee Roth Nose cut.

David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen have always had a tempestuous relationship. Roth was the original lead singer of Van Halen, until he was replaced by Sammy Hagar in 1985. Roth then went on to release a solo album "Eat up and Smile". However in the album, he made several uncharitable references to Van Halen and his replacement. Eddie Van Halen maintained a studious silence until he releases the Band's next offering OU812,which silenced Roth once and for all. What was so significant about this album?
