In 1980, British band Iron Maiden released their debut album Iron Maiden. The album was very successful for a debut album, hitting 4 on the UK charts. With Killers, Iron Maiden continued their rise in popularity. Though it wasn’t as successful in the charts, Killers sold four times as much as the self titled album
Produced by Martin Birch. You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs. My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.
Iron Maiden's sophomore effort, Killers, is mostly composed of pre-existing material that had been left off the debut, with just a few new additions. It's certainly a better-sounding release than the debut, with new producer Martin Birch beefing up the band's studio presence and lending their instrumental attack a newfound clarity that throws their considerable skills into sharp relief. The resulting instrumental fireworks are what truly make the album tick. That said, there's a much smaller percentage of catalog standards here than on the previous album. Wrathchild" is the standout, re-recorded here with Smith on guitar from an earlier version for the Metal for Muthas compilation. There's a fair bit of unity in the lyrical themes, with a parade of murderers, fugitives, and characters otherwise torn from their roots.
Iron Maiden were always ambitious. By the time they got together to record the follow-up to their game-changing debut album, guitarist Dennis Stratton had been sacked for "musical differences". Killers was not their best album, but it was the stepping stone to perhaps the best run the world of metal will ever see, with the five albums that followed (six, if you count Live After Death – and why wouldn’t you?).
