Apart from this small shortcoming this is an almost perfect metal album.
S. Koropeckyj
I already loved those albums when I got this one and wasn't exactly expecting something of those albums level.
Adrian
If you like loud, extremely fast, distorted HEAVY chainsaw guitars, this is the album for you.

Format: Audio CD
For all the (well deserved) praise of "Darkness Descends" it seems to be criminally overlooked just how brilliant the follow up, "Leave Scars", actually was. Perhaps it was the change of vocalists, I'm not sure. Nonetheless, "Leave Scars" is one of the all time unrecognized classics. The album kicks off with "The Death of Innocence", a disturbing peek inside the mind of a child molester that speeds along at a breakneck pace that brings out the best in Ron Rinehart's tongue twisting capabilities. And talk about serious thrash, the side-one ending cover of "The Immigrant Song" must be heard to be believed.

Despite the strong consistency of side one, the latter half of the album is what puts this one over the top. Aside from the crushing atmospheric instro "Worms" the remaining three tracks are all ingenious clinics in the use of the almighty Riff. This is THE album I kept reflecting back on when I heard what Metallica were trying to do with "St. Anger". If you liked the way that album was headed but felt it floundered a bit in the execution, do yourself a favor and track down "Leave Scars". And yet, to focus too much on the riffology is to the detrement of the lyrics, which to this day I still consider some of the most thoughtful literate in the genre. "Older Than Time Itself" is a razor sharp dissection of the historical nature of selfishness, while "The Promise of Agony" puts a more sobering, less crybaby spin on the "my life is meaningless" angle that the emo kiddies are perpetrating these days. But it's the title track that ends the record with a bang (not to mention three back-to-back false endings!). Reversing the mopey "woe is me" of "Promise...", "Leave Scars" is an uplifting anthem to self empowerment that is easily as anthemic (not to mention more sharply written) than anything in the beloved Pantera catalog. Whoever owns the rights to Combat's old catalog should reissue this monster along with it's sequel, "Time Does Not Heal", pronto.

A few moments after putting this one in my Hi-Fi CD player I was afraid I would destroy my system, even at moderate volume. This album is unbelievable. If you like loud, extremely fast, distorted HEAVY chainsaw guitars, this is the album for you. The ultimate extreme thrash band based on this recording alone. It reminds me somewhat of Venom's first album 'Welcome to Hell', which blew me away the first time I heard it back in the day. The rough recording quality, sheer heaviness and pure distortion noticeably overshadows the melody to be sure. But this is an over all very cathartic album. Of course I would say that 'Leave Scars' along with 'Darkness Descends' and 'Time Does Not Heal' (a much more clear and melodic album, although no less heavy) are the ones to get for anybody who needs a fix of pure bone-crushing, bludgeoning, mind-blowing musical assault. Oh did I say that a look at the lyrics reveals the most intelligent, literate and sophistical vocabulary every used in such brutal thrash metal music. From one of greatest extreme metal bands to grace the world of metal, this one's a sure-fire winner!

Deep in the underbelly of the emerging thrash scene in the early 80's there were four fledgling bands that accelerated into super-stardom in a blinding blitzkrieg of power and raw sound and would ultimately be dubbed 'The Big Four';namely Metallica,Slayer,Megadeth and Anthrax,though the latter dabbled with a somewhat different sound with mixed results.
Amidst this new genre was a band that had harnessed a unique blend of speed with thought provoking lyrics,spewed forth by one Don Doty.It was 'thinking mans thrash',and as such,maybe didn't quite get the notoriety it deserved.The band was Dark Angel.
I first stumbled upon them on a cassette tape compilation called 'Masters Of Metal',the song was 'The Death Of Innocence'.I was amazed at the sheer brutality of it,and the lyrics were insane.The ramblings of a pedophile admitting his sickness.Taking over the helm on the mic was one Ron Rinehart,a headbanging machine who must have one hell of a good memory when you look at the lyric sheet on this album!
Leave Scars is not so much a departure from their debut 'Darkness Descends,it is still distinctively Dark Angel,but the production is crisp,and the content is a lot more mature.It's an absolute masterpiece that is still,after over 20 years of listening to it,one of my favourite thrash albums.Gene Hoglan,who once tried out as drummer for Slayer after a stint as being one of their Roadies,is an absolute powerhouse,unrelenting and as a technical drummer,he would be right up there.The guitars are a wall of noise with piercing leads and Mike Gonzalez fills it all in with a driving bassline.A much under-rated album and band overall this is definitely worth a listen if you are feeling nostalgic and looking for some hidden gems in the 80's thrash scene.
