EP216: Dark Angel “Darkness Descends”

Dark Angel’s second LP was released in 1986, the zenith of Thrash Metal and the same year as “Master of Puppets,” “Reign in Blood,” “Peace Sells..” and dozens of other classics of the genre.  It didn’t leave the same scars that many of those other LPs did at the time but how does this cacophony of Slayer inspired riffage hold up in 2023?  Pretty damn well actually.   

RIP Jim Durkin
