Killers (Iron Maiden album). Killers is the only Iron Maiden album to feature two instrumentals, and was written almost exclusively by Steve Harris, only two tracks, "Twilight Zone" and the title track are co-authored. The opening track, "The Ides of March" is the band's shortest song to date.

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?). Here are the 14 biggest news stories of the week.

Killers, is a bittersweet album for me. On one end this album introduces the fabulous melodic guitar work of Adrian Smith, on the other end we lose the masterful skill of guitarist Dennis Stratton and the punk powerhouse vocals of Paul Di'Anno. This brutal follow-up to the self-titled debut album, Iron Maiden has definitely earned it's place among metal album greats! Killers features a rougher style than it's predecessor, both vocally and instrumentally. Unfortunately the train ride ends here, Iron Maiden and Killers were the last Maiden albums of their kind. Over time many bands polish their sound and lose their edge, Maiden is no exception. This always has been, and always will be among Maiden's best work!

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.
