A7X Vs Atreyu
Victory reports: Feuds aren't just for rappers and former ska band members anymore. Orange County's Avenged Sevenfold called out neighbors Atreyu publicly in U.K.'s rock weekly, Kerrang, with M. Shadows claiming "Atreyu are leading the scene that we want to get out of. They're part of it and we're not. I wouldn't say we are f***ing friends." He goes on to accuse Atreyu of ripping off a song intro while band mate The Reverend maintains that there is no rivalry to speak of! The fair, balanced journalists at Kerrang! gave Atreyu a chance to respond in this week's issue. Vocalist Alex Varkatzas was dismissive, saying, "As far as we knew we were on good terms with the guys, having toured with them briefly in the past. We were looking forward to seeing them again on the Warped Tour so we're slightly taken aback by all of this. I guess if you're not down with Atreyu, you can go f*** yourself." Kerrang! took the last word, saying, "We hear ya, buddy." With both bands spending the long hot summer on tour together, anything could happen - this bad blood could dwarf the likes of The Killers vs. The Bravery, 50 Cent vs. The Game, Kelly Osbourne vs. Christina Aquilera and even the classic beef between David Lee Roth and Sammy Hagar over fronting Van Halen.

Live 8 Failure
Contact Music reports: SIR BOB GELDOF predicts his LIVE 8 concerts and protest marches will fail to force the hands of international leaders - but he will be safe in the knowledge he did everything within his power to relieve poverty in Africa. 

The BAND AID icon hates the work involved with organising such huge scale events, but he would have struggled to live with himself if he hadn't taken action, just as he did with 1985's legendary BAND AID concerts. [see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Ra's Duality Explained
Day in Rock reports: In anticipation of the release of Ra's sophomore album, we were given some tidbits about the release and why it's named Duality. - Ra recorded, produced and mixed 70% of Duality in Sahaj's parents' Upstate NY home and his own Sun God Rock studios in East Rutherford NJ, four songs of which were collaborations with producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Seether, Shinedown, Saliva). 

Divided into two parts, the first labeled "Fear," the second "Love," Duality's dialectic covers a wide range of emotions in its journey from despair to hope. The intensity of "Take Me Away," interspersing howling guitars, tribal rhythms and Sting-like vocals, is juxtaposed with the reggae beat of "I Lost Everything." The Middle Eastern flavor and U2 feel of "The Only One" segues into the harmonic arena-rock of "Say You Will," while the wrenching distortion of "Taken" forms a counterpoint to the lush landscape of "Swimming Upstream," which unflinchingly views an unrequited love with measured regret. - Check out the full story link to hear the first single "Fallen Angels". - Click Here for the Full Story
