IRON MAIDEN / Killers (1981)

The 2nd and last Maiden album to feature Paul Di'Anno on vocals treads similar ground to their eponymous début.  The production is better, and the riffs are heavier which gives new life to the dual guitar assault.  Steve’s bass is again the driving force, seeing as how he’s the main songwriter that makes a kind of sense musically.  Di'Anno seems less at home with the material  but he still gives it full force.  However, there are 2 tracks upon which he doesn't feature at all.  It’s Adrian Smith’s first album.  Enough boring chatter.  It’s another classic.
