When Maiden announced that the album ‘Killers’ is ‘cutting edge of Heavy Metal’ might just be a few people, they knew that the cutting edge would just happen a year later. No one could dream of what would suddenly and permanently change the heavy metal we knew so far. This album is ABC book of metal music and this book is the first insight of this kind into the most hidden secrets of this epic album. From the initial, biblical ‘Woe to you, oh Earth and Sea’, to the diabolic scream, (a homage to the scream in the song ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’), the album’s title song shows us all the strength of the blow this album has been challenged by the music market.
