Killers was not the only band/project featuring vocalist Paul Di'Anno following his departure from Iron Maiden, and it wouldn't be the last, as he's released a new solo album since this band's span. For whatever reason, Di'Anno's post-Maiden career has been spotty at best, despite his solid vocal performances. Neither studio album here has much in common with Maiden whatsoever (even Di'Anno himself doesn't really sound quite the same), with Murder One sounding more American than British (mainstream-ish hard rock/metal) and Menace To Society switching gears by beefing up the sound with decided Pantera influences, a move that ultimately was as unnatural as one might suspect. Ultimately the band just didn't stand out much, and really wasn't all that well publicized, with Maiden fans probably being the only fans familiar with the band.

Note: no relation to Killers, the French speed metal band.
