5 stars The most underrated album of the Maiden. To give the true value to Killers you must to go to 1981. Before Killers, the heavy rock were some old bands (Sabbath, Purple and the Zeppelin) and the only new element was Judas Priest. Killers was the true first highlight (the press qualifed Iron Maiden as the best rock band since Led Zeppelin, and in Japan were qualifed as the best new Rock band). When the album was edited in1981 Iron Maiden give the next step, give a new face at the Heavy Metal and the next step to the prog rock. At that year the flag of rock was Kiss, Quiet Riot and a lot of puppy metal bands. Iron Maiden did represent the true Heavy Metal with Judas Priest, all before of the Dickinson Age!. The first album was good but for me Killers was better. More Heavy, More solid, fresh and better production (with Martin Birch). Songs as Purgatory, Killers and Murders in the Rue Morgue were the base of the trash and speed metal and great influence in bands as Metallica. Grreat riffs with the new duo Murray-Smith and a incredible rhytmic base with Harris (this album show this man as the best bass player of the metal and Clive Burr the best drummer in the history of Maiden). With Powerslave, Killers is my favourite album of Iron Maiden and they are in my top ten of best Heavy Metal albums of all times.
