With all these multi-CD box sets and quadruple DVDs popping up left and right, too many bands are eager to blow their creative loads in a single release. But just as it seems the notion of leave the fans wanting more has gone by the wayside, along comes System of a Down, which like any good prog band, has released a conceptual album -- in two parts. The first part, Mezmerize, came out in May, while the second, Hypnotize, is scheduled for a November release. Though it was born of the '90s n-metal boom, System's creative, outside-the-box thinking and complex song structures put it above the more dunderheaded bands of that genre -- and boy, are there plenty of those. System joins the Mars Volta and Bad Acid Trip tonight at the Office Depot Center (1 Panthers Pkwy., Sunrise). Show starts at 7 p.m. Tickets cost $32.50 to $45. Visit www.ticketmaster.com, or call 954-523-3309. (JB)
