''9 songs, 67 min...wait a moment, probably everyone who has above-average contact with thrash metal has heard about it in the context of "Time Does Not Heal". After all, the fourth Dark Angel album in some groups boasts a little less cult than "Darkness Descends" itself. Anyway, shortly after the release of "Leave Scars", Eric Meyer's band said goodbye to guitarist Jim Durkin, and Brett Eriksen was added to the line-up, with whom the group began recording new material in 1990, on the one hand, heading towards more twisted regions (246 riffs from the announcement obligated to something - for those with excess time: count it!), on the other hand, expanding this style...with a number of more accessible solutions. 
However, similarly to the third album, the fourth Dark Angel lp is a good example of how metal music was changing at that time; in the case of "Time Does Not Heal", when there was a wave of commercial thrash metal by Metallica's black album. Dark Angel's fourth longplay is no different. This is clearly audible in the selective and meaty sound by Terry Date, referring to Metallica, but also in terms of the music itself, which has sensibly gained from allowing slower, slightly rolling tempos (although there is also thrashing in the old way) and a large pugnacity. On the other side, as I mentioned earlier, what clearly distinguishes "Time..." from the multitude of other bands that were fascinated by the first, larger stylistic twist of James Hetfield and co., are much more frequent combination tendencies, which more or less resulted in such bands as Coroner, Watchtower, Death or Toxik. Of course, Dark Angel's music is not as advanced as the above-mentioned ones, although Americans can sometimes stun with their skills and intuition between sudden transitions and songwriting.''
