Guest review by
Can I call this album Darkness Descends: Chapter II? On the one hand yes, on the other not. Leave Scars does come as aggressively as its predecessor, but it is definitely a more mature album. Speaking about it as Dark Angel's third record, I would say it's a step forward, but speaking about it as a Thrash Metal album in late eighties, I would say it still lacks a lot: production and the originality of the music generally speaking for instance, although those two did become better.

After listening to this again I realise that it is actually better than I initially thought it was.
