Released in 1986, Dark Angel's second full length album "Darkness Descends" is simply put one of the best and most brutal, ferocious, and fastest 80's thrash metal albums that I've had the great pleasure of listening to being that I'm a huge 80's thrash/speed metal fanatic myself.

Be prepared when you are about to listen to this album because this album will deliver thrash metal so hard that you will fall backwards. Dark Angelš made this remarkable thrash album and this album has been claimed to be a minor thrash metal classic. The members in šDark Angelš didn't have so many aces in their arm-sleeves but they knew how to play them well, the album šDarkness Descendsš is considered to be one of Thrash metals most extreme and heaviest along with other extreme thrash bands such as legendary šSlayerš for example
