The album was their first with guitarist Adrian Smith, and their last with vocalist Paul Di'Anno, who was fired after problems with his stage performance arose due to his alcohol and cocaine use.

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.

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. 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.

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.

Release date: February 2nd, 1981. Catalog ID: EMC 3357. I Killed For This Album! 94%. Starborn. The disappointing follow-up.
