SEVENDUST drummer Morgan Rose has admitted to that the group's current single, "Enemy", is a diatribe directed toward ex-COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara, who is currently in the band DEVILDRIVER.

"Enemy" was written and largely sung by Rose, whose wife is former COAL CHAMBER bassist Rayna Foss-Rose. The song, a full-on character assassination, features such lines as, "Look at your face, look at your name/ Funny you're a loser with only yourself to blame," and "You want to be like me 'cause it's real/ So you steal on your way to fame."

"That song is about the person in the world that I hate more than Saddam Hussein," Rose said. "It was good to be able to get that stuff off my chest because I was able to express myself without doing anything stupid that would get me in trouble."

"Enemy" was originally called "Pez", a derogatory nickname Rose had for Fafara. "We called him that because I used to say, 'I want to take this dude's head and pull it back and rip his tongue out of his neck,' " Rose grumbled.

Rose said that his has such rancor for Fafara because of the way he allegedly treated Foss-Rose when COAL CHAMBER were together. "He's a horrible human being and he fucked my wife over real bad," he said. "But it turned out to be a really good song."

SEVENDUST's video for "Enemy" was directed by Adam Pollina, a former artist for the comic book "X-Force", and features an appearance by ex-WWE female wrestler Chyna. The second single from SEVENDUST's fourth album, "Seasons", which comes out October 7 through TVT Records, likely will be the title track.
