I love Kiler Dwarfs, got into this album as a teenager in the 90's and re-bought the CD to enjoy it again.

With a name like Killer Dwarfs, how could you go wrong? Oh, you've never heard of them? Well, neither did I until 12 years ago when I forgot to send back that damn music club reply card. I found the band's fourth album, Dirty Weapons in my mailbox. To my surprise, they blew me away!

Formed in 1981, Killer Dwarfs established a solid following in their home country of Canada with their self-titled debut. In 1984 the U.S. started to take notice when the band released Keep the Spirit Alive, the first single from their sophomore album entitled Stand Tall. The accompanying video was added to regular rotation on MTV. Later that year Killer Dwarfs were signed by Epic Records to a worldwide deal. The band released their second album for Epic, Dirty Weapons in 1990.

The title track opens the album with a driving metal riff that says, "Let's rock!" (Though the message is highly political.) Russ Dwarf has a great melodic voice, which can be compared to Jack Russell (Great White) but with a much higher range. Guitarist Mike Dwarf tears it up with catchy hooks, and shredding solos in the vain of George Lynch (Dokken) among others. All of the songs including "Nothing Gets Nothing", "All That We Dream", "Last Laugh", and "Coming Through" have the typical metal format: Opening riff, verse, chorus, solo, back to verse. But, isn't that what we loved about 80's metal? "One Way Out" has a 'bluesy' tone to it. As the album winds down with "Appeal", "Not Fooling", and "Want it Bad", the music loses the punch that the earlier songs had, but are still great melodic pieces. The bands biggest hit off the album was "It Doesn't Matter", an acoustic ballad. It went to number one in 13 cities.

If you're a fan of 80's metal, you need to pick up Dirty Weapons. It's a great metal album that got lost in the shuffle.

I remember hearing the song "Dirty Weapons" on some metal compilation and I just thought, what a great song. I had to check out more of the Killer Dwarfs. I remember seeing a video on MTV years and years ago where I think his name is Russ is in box being bounced around town. I can't remember the song but a very interesting video. I never saw it again. Needless to say label support was lacking with this band. That is why they didn't get the video rotation or airplay back then. Evidence is this here album or should I say CD. The material on this is strong rock and even contains a power ballad, "Doesn't Mattter", a prerequisite in the 80's hair band days. The band liked it so much they released it again on the "Method To The Madness" CD, the era from where this recording hails. Anyway let's get to the music.

1. Dirty Weapons 10/10. Just fantastic

2. Nothin' Gets Nothin' 9/10 Great riffs

3. All That We Dream 9/10 Great beat

4. Doesn't Matter 8/10 I am not a huge power ballad fan but a good song nonetheless.

5. Last Laugh 8/10 a good rocker

6. Comin' Through 10/10 Another of the big songs from this release.

7. One Way Out 9/10 very good song that keeps the momentum up

8. Appeal 7/10 one of the weaker songs

9. Not Foolin' 9/10 more great riffs

10. Want It Bad 9/10 great closer

Most if not all of these songs have catchy chorus and just meaty guitar riffs. Very underrated album from the 80's. but wait. There is more. 5 BONUS TRACKS from the "Method To The Madness" CD. Not nearly as good of an album but the 2 best tunes are included here in "Method To The Madness" & "Cowboys And Conmen". The other 3 tracks are competent enough but "Dirty Weapons" the CD was still their best release. Check it out and see if you don't agree with me. The Bonus tracks just help make this an even better CD. Recommended for all fans of 80's metal.

Made in USA in 2000, Serial# COL-6451, Playing Time: 61 min.
This is KD's 4th album, originally released in 1990. This re-mastered version includes 5 bonus tracks lifted from their next album, "Method To The Madness" (another 6 tracks appeared on the "Big Deal" re-mastered CD). Left out of these re-issues is the re-recorded version of "Doesn't Matter".
"Dirty Weapons" is a nice follow-up to "Big Deal", and shows that the band has evolved: the material has more complex arrangements, not as "simple and catchy" as "Big Deal". It takes a few listens to absorb, and I don't like it as much as "Big Deal"; it has good guitar work and is well produced.
Listen to the tracks "Dirty Weapons" and "All That We Dream": the first is more in the vein of the "Big Deal" album, while the latter represents the general "sound" of "Dirty Weapons".
And if you're like me and both tracks appeal to you, you're in for a treat if you get both albums from this under-rated band.

I purchased this album for only 2 songs (Dirty Weapons & Doesn't Matter). I was totally blown away by the rest of the album. Songs such as: All That We Dream, Last Laugh, Not Foolin', Want It Bad, Give and Take, Look Around, Goodbye To Yesterday, and Cowboys and Conmen were all great.

I'm wondering who will be reading this review? About the only person that might be checking out Killer Dwarfs stuff is Jim Bob Dwarf. Oh well. I bought the original version of this back in 1990. I just thought they had a cool name and wondered what they sounded like. To my suprise, this was a pretty good album. It has an 80's melodic metal sound. No filler here. I also have the album that the extra tracks come from. Those songs are pretty good too. I would recommend this to anyone who liked late 80's metal and has some money to burn. GO DUNK!!
