I cannot believe some of the negative reviews posted about "Killers". Sure its different than all of the Iron Maiden albums that followed, but it is such a great album in its own right, and part of it's greatness comes from its uniqueness. Di'Anno may not be the vocalist Dickinson is, but I couldn't imagine anyone else singing "Prodigal Son" or "Murders In the Rue Morgue". (It's a shame Di'Anno wasn't able to land a more high profile gig after his split with Maiden, as he does have a great rock n' roll voice) Some of the material on "Killers" holds up so well that almost any one of these songs could fit onto the current Maiden album and still sound new and fresh. I always thought Clive Burr's drumming was fantastic and really helped cement the Iron Maiden "sound". And the backbone of the band is showcased really well on several tracks found on "Killers". The instrumental "Ghengis Khan" is a metalhead's delight, featuring pounding drums, blistering bass lines, and some really great guitar riffs. The ballad "Prodigal Son" is a stand out track for the sole reason that it's about the only ballad in Iron Maiden's song collection. The title track and "Murders in the Rue Morgue" are also stand out songs that would be great to hear live. If you are a fan of the band but haven't picked up this and the debut album because it doesn't feature Bruce Dickinson on vocals, rest assured that Di'Anno does a great job, and is one of the reasons the band was signed to a major label to begin with. Great album, and one of the building blocks for one of the world's best bands.

THE BAND: Steve Harris (bass), Paul Di'Anno (vocals), Dave Murray (guitar), Adrian Smith (guitar), Clive Burr (drums).

THE DISC: 11 tracks clocking in at approximately 42 minutes. All songs written by bassist Steve Harris (and sharing credits with Murray and Di'Anno on one song each). The disc contains a 22-page booklet with a brief intro, lyrics, band pictures and thank you's. The enhanced CD features a nice multimedia section for your PC - including 2 rare videos with Di'Anno singing ("Killers" and "Wrathchild"), the band's catalogue of albums, band history and family tree, and a 1981 tour date listing. Recorded at Battery Studios (London) in 1981. Digitally remastered in 1998. Cover art by the one and only Derek Riggs.

COMMENTS: This album was/is special to me. I bought the vinyl record upon its release and wore it out immediately. I liked it so much I painted the album cover of "Killers" on the back of my jean jacket... not even thinking about what my high school prinicpal would say ("Don't wear it to school anymore"). Iron Maiden was rough and raw here, but they were catchy as Hell. The minute and a half intro of "The Ides Of March" leading into the killer track "Wrathchild" set the stage for a great album. The title cut is still one of my all-time favorites from the band. The 6-minute acoustic (almost friendly) "Prodigal Son" showed a side of the band that you rarely saw (even today). Paul Di'Anno was basically fired from the band due to his (party) accesses, erratic behavior, and strained vocal chords. I believe it was a risk the band was willing to take to record a follow-up to Killers. Little did they know what was in store with their next album - perhaps their best ever, "The Number Of The Beast".

Iron Maiden's sophomore album is, well, killer! I also must add that it sports one of the best cover artwork ever! For a year or two during the 80s this album was my all-time favorite. It's gone down my list a little since then (even a couple of other Maiden albums are now ahead of it), but it's still a five-star classic! This album is fast and furious and features the debut of Adrian Smith on guitar. The best material on this album is on the second side (sorry, I still think in vinyl/cassette terms). "Killers" is a powerful track. Steve Harris' bass work is haunting! Paul Di'Anno's vocals here are amazing, especially on the verse "God help me what have I done!" He put a lot of energy, feeling, and soul in his vocals. "Prodigal Son" is one of my favorite tracks on this record as it shows Maiden's versatility. It's a mellow track with beautiful guitar work. I remember playing this one for my father years ago to show him that Iron Maiden wasn't just loud metal music (he reluctantly agreed and then told me to turn down the stereo). I also like the lyrics to that track. Di'Anno has a more soulful voice than Bruce Dickinson. I think he does some of his best vocal work on "Twilight Zone." The way he sings the line "deep inside me," it really tugs at the heartstrings. He is also excellent on "Purgatory" (one of Maiden's faster tracks). Killers also has one of Maiden's more famous numbers "Wrathchild," which I actually think is one of the weakest songs on this album. The only other weak part is the last track "Drifter," which I think loses its edge toward the end (it also has a rather corny guitar solo).Read more ›
