Gonna be available in Europe in a few hours. But it's leaked already anyway.

Good simple and old school metal style song here. Myles is sounding super strong here too. Must be well-rested. I like the verses being in his mid-range. It feels we haven't heard much of that in recent albums.

Great little descending vocal pattern before the last chorus and at the end. Nice to hear an AB song that isn't super stuffed with loads of parts.

Not very melodic but it's definitely a cool song. Shame for no solo but new AB is always welcome. The mix is mastered hot but better than both TLH and WTS with the arrangement being simpler.

Really like that, definitely AIC inspired and I'm all aboard there.

Yep, can't say much else other than it's a solid track. Not a favourite of mine by any means, but the riff is killer and I like the vocal melodies too.

Just heard the song a few times, I like the main riff/intro riff but the weird vocal delivery/vocal effects/melody by Myles around the 3min mark the first time and at the end will take some time to get used to. Wasnt a fan of it at first listen. Also could have used a guitar solo and a longer bridge with an instrumental riff break or something before that 3min mark IMO. I think this song will have to be a grower for me.

I mean. It's all right, and by all right, I mean it's a listenable AB song and yep, this is one of those more "sinister" sounding songs like The Other Side and Indoctrination. You can definitely hear hints of Alice in Chains and that's a plus.

I miss the days they go crazy in the bridge section, though, and I think it's expected with the track listing of 4 minutes that this song wouldn't bring that kind of forte. Oh well, hopefully, they can do it in the next album. Whenever it may be....

I like the main riff, verses, and outro. Don't care for the pre-chorus and chorus. The bridge is different, but ultimately I can't get "bonus track" out of my head with this one.

Even if we included it in WTS official, I wouldn't know where to put it. Dying Light should still be the last song of the album. Also, even if included, Pay No Mind is still the only chorus on this album without harmonizing Myles at parts. For shame they don't leave out the harmonization more often.

Feels like a b-side song. Still liked it. I like the bendy verses and the grungy AIC vibes. The chorus fits with the song. Don't think I'll come back to this song often, considering it's not part of a real album and it's just not that spectacular. Still a fun listen.

I somehow missed such sinister, aggressive songs on WTS. Still I can see, why this is only a bonus track. Sounds very AIC-ish, which is great.

Ok song...a b-side for sure.

I like the riffs (Sounds like a Tremonti song though), the rest of the song is just ok.

i'm really hoping for more synth stuff in the future

it'd be awesome if instead of just mentioning john carpenter as an influence, they worked with him (or his son cody)

i know one or both of them would be down!!

Maybe not my favorite AB tune of all time but it's growing on me with every listen. As others have said, I'm really digging the sludgy, beefy riffs. Myles voice is sounding great. The lyrics are pretty decent and the vocal melodies are different and kinda catchy. A welcome treat during this pandemic during an incredible run of new albums! Seether and Sevendust and now new Black Stone Cherry. I can hardly keep up!
