Killer is the fourth studio album by American rock band Alice Cooper, released in November 1971 via Warner Bros. Records.

Cooper said in the liner notes of Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love it to Death albums, that the song Desperado was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released.

Halo of Flies was, according to Cooper's liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-like progressive rock suites, and was supposedly about a SMERSH-like organisation.

Desperado along with Under My Wheels and Be My Lover have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper.

The song Dead Babies stirred up some controversy following the album's release, despite the fact that its lyrics conveyed an "anti-child abuse" message.

Musicians such as Jello Biafra and John Lydon have referred to the album as an influence.

The Alice Cooper Band members were:

  • Alice Cooper – vocals, harmonica
  • Glen Buxton – lead guitar
  • Michael Bruce – rhythm guitar, keyboards, backing vocals
  • Dennis Dunaway – bass guitar, backing vocals
  • Neal Smith – drums, backing vocals

Additional musicians featured on the album included Bob Ezrin (keyboards) and Rick Derringer (additional guitar on Under My Wheels).

The album was produced by Bob Ezrin.

The album reached #21 on the Billboard album chart and two singles made the Hot 100 chart. Under My Wheels reached #59, and Be My Lover reached #49 on the Billboard chart.

This LP Record is Remastered 180 Gram Vinyl cut from the original analogue master tapes, housed in a Gatefold Sleeve with packaging replicated to the finest detail, pressed in Europe.
