This is by far the best thrash album in terms of technicallity, and musicainship. It think this band has somthing in common with sadus in that they both have released an album or two that has more riffs and complexity than any of the big four put out in their entire careers. Every song is epic, dripping with intricate and precise riffs, that make just about any other metal album out there sound somewhat shabby. I dare say that the guys in metallica couldnt even comprehend how to write music with such complexity, as thay lacked the abillity. If AJFA was metallica at their most sophisticated, its not that impressive compared to this masterpeice.I find it funny AJFA is considered a landmark of progressive thrash, as only a few songs on the album are even thrash, and it isnt really that technical, or progressive. But THIS is progressive/Technical thrash done the right way.If there were a perfect example of human creative potentail being fulfilled it would be this entire album. I believe that this has hardly been matched or surpassed since it's realease. If you really think that metallica and salyer and the rest of the big four are the final word on thrash, not only do you lack knowlege of the genre, but you also display characterisitcs of a poser, a follower, and a fool. i dont care how you look at it, from technicality, to musicianship there are numerous thrash bands such as Dark Angel that were more talented than the big four. they just didnt get any credit. it seems like all some people know is what mtv put in their heads. Anybody who considers this less than worthy knows nothing about complex or sophisticated music, and has no buisness even commenting here.

Worst vocal performance ever, the guy has a range of 4 notes and uses the same James Hetfield "eah" at the end of every line. Musically this album is fine, but once the vocals start it makes me want to shut it off - and I usually do.

Time Does Not Heal is a pretty solid thrashy death metal album.

Dark Angel finally strikes gold here, managing to be both brutal and memorable this time. The songs here are super technical and packed with loads of killer riffs. The opening title track and The New Priesthood are probably the best examples of this album's awesome riffage, and are the best songs on here. One complaint I have, though, is Ron Rinehart's vocal delivery, which ranges from pretty good (Pain's Invention, Madness) to outright annoying (For example, Sensory Deprivation), and really takes some getting used to. Also the "Black Edition" of this, which comes with a couple live bonus tracks, sounds like ass thanks to "remastering"; AKA senseless brickwalling. But it's still a pretty good album. If you're a fan of more extreme thrash metal, get this and Darkness Descends, otherwise this is all you'll really need from them. Also, you gotta love how there's a song on here that's basically a deconstruction of Bambi.

The crowning achievement of technical/progressive thrash metal. Sure, this isnt as good as albums such as Black future or Nothingface or Think This, but its definitely more ambitious and thats what makes it so good. Almost a 5/5, this is a magnificent release that fans of guitar work in excess (the sheer fucking amount of riffs) will jizz their pants over

"9 songs, 67 minutes, 246 riffs." That was the tagline released with Dark Angel's seminal fourth and final release and boy, does this album live up to the hype. It really packs a punch. Reign In Blood contained 10 songs and ran for a total of 28 minutes, so that tells you what an audacious album this is. Riff after riff, song after song, it's very intoxicating, combining the ferocity of Thrash with Progressive, Dark Angel may have invented a new sub-genre: Technical Thrash Metal. Anyone in search or metal bands and albums that flew under the radar, Time Does Not Heal is a great example of a Thrash album that deserves more credibility, a brutal but brilliant release sure to impress any Thrash-head.

Sometimes having 678439 riffs per song on an album it's just not enough. Mediocre songwriting.

I love Darkness Descends and Leave Scars, unfortunately Time Does Not Heal is an abomination. Ron Rineheart has the worst vocal performance of his time in Dark Angel on this album, not to mention the 246 riffs that are extremely boring and contain zero direction. Time Does Not Heal is a prime example of potential and possibilities lost in the shuffle of music that contains zero direction.
