Much like anything else I've done in this blog, I'm going to start a series of posts where I highlight a metal riff that I enjoy. Let's take a look at Dark Angel's song "Time Does Not Heal." The album of the same name claims to have 246 individual riffs packed within its 67 minutes of goodness. It's certainly a bold claim, though I can't vouch for it because I haven't individually counted.
Regardless, the album rocks, but it was definitely a grower because odd vocal melodies scattered throughout the track listing turned me away...at first. The majority of the riffs are thrash-based--fast and hyper speed alternate picking. For the song below, I prefer to let the music speak for itself. And if you like it, you'll likely like the rest of the album.
Gene Holglan was a part of Dark Angel as well. That automatically makes them awesome, right?!
