Killers is the second studio album by British heavy metal band Iron Maiden, originally released in February 1981 via EMI Records in the UK and Capitol Records in the US.

Iron Maiden formed in 1975 by bassist and primary songwriter Steve Harris. Pioneers of the new wave of British heavy metal, Iron Maiden achieved initial success during the early 1980s. After several line-up changes, the band went on to release a series of UK and US platinum and gold albums. Since the return of lead vocalist Bruce Dickinson and guitarist Adrian Smith in 1999, the band have undergone a resurgence in popularity. Despite little radio or television support. Iron Maiden are considered one of the most successful heavy metal bands in history, selling over 90 million albums worldwide.

 

As the follow-up to their successful debut album Iron MaidenKillers saw Harris write most of the material, with only minor assistance from the rest of the band (the title track and Twilight Zone being the only other songs to receive additional writing credits).

Twilight Zone was the first single released, in March, with Purgatory following in June 1981. The former was not included in the original UK album but was included on the American vesion of the album, which was released after the initial UK release.  

The Killer World Tour followed to promote the album and would feature the band's earliest shows in the US, the first being at The Aladdin, Las Vegas in support of Judas Priest. The song Wrathchild is now the only regularly played track from the album, appearing in almost all their concert tours.

Check out a couple of tracks from the album.  KillersWrathchild, The Ides of March and Murders in the Rue Morgue.

This LP record is a reissue (October 2014) on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl featuring remastered audio, pressed in Europe via Parlophone Records.
