DARK ANGEL - Darkness Descends LP (PURPLE)

229,00 kr
Darkness Descends (originally released in 1986) is widely regarded as Dark Angel's 'classic' record. The roots of Dark Angel go back to the year 1981 when Don Doty (vocals), Jim Durkin (guitars), Rob Yahn (bass) and Mike Andrade (drums) formed the band in Downey, California, during the early days of the Bay Area Thrash invasion. Their original band name was Shellshock which they changed to Dark Angel in 1983. In 1985 the first record We Have Arrived was released -a decent enough Thrash Metal debut record with fast and furious songs such as “Welcome To The Slaughter House” or the title track but Dark Angel really found their own style on the second album Darkness Descends. They had moved towards more elaborate compositions with technical twists and turns (plus Gene Hoglan's trademark lyrics dealing with psychological illnesses and traumata). No doubt about it - Darkness Descends is one of the most important albums in Thrash Metal history.
