Iron Maiden - Killers




Το 1981 στις 2 Φεβρουαρίου, οι νεαροί -τότε- Iron Maiden κυκλοφόρησαν τον δεύτερο δίσκο τους, Killers

Ο δίσκος αυτός σηματοδότησε δυο πράγματα...

Το ένα είναι, πως αυτός ο δίσκος θα είναι ο τελευταίος -με τους Iron Maiden- για τον τραγουδιστή Paul Di'Anno, κυρίως γιατί με τον χαρακτήρα που είχε, δεν μπορούσε να ανταπεξέλθει στην παγκόσμια περιοδεία τους και στην όλο και αυξανόμενη δημοτικότητά τους, και το άλλο είναι πως σε αυτόν τον δίσκο συμμετέχει για πρώτη φορά ο κιθαρίστας Adrian Smith -χάρη στην φιλία του με τον Dave Murray από τα σχολικά τους χρόνια-...

Μπορεί σαν δίσκος να μην ξεπέρασε στα charts το #12, αλλά ηχητικά είναι μακράν καλύτερος απο τον ομότιτλο πρώτο τους δίσκο και αυτό οφείλεται κυρίως στην πρόσληψη του Martin Birch... -εδώ ξεκινά μια παράδοση-

Δεν υπάρχει κάποια ιστορία πίσω απο την δημιουργία του δίσκου, παρα μόνο το  ότι το Murders In The Rue Morgue είναι βασισμένο στο ομώνυμο βιβλίο του Edgar Allan Poe...-εδώ ξεκινά μια άλλη παράδοση-

Το Tracklist είναι το εξής:

1. The Ides of March
2. Wrathchild
3. Murders in the Rue Morgue
4. Another Life
5. Genghis Khan
6. Innocent Exile
7. Killers
8. Prodigal Son
9. Purgatory
10. Drifter

και οι παίχτες σε αυτόν τον δίσκο οι εξής:

Paul Di'Anno - φωνητικά

Steve Harris - μπάσο (μου έκανε και δίσκο το νιάτο... το αισχρό British Lion)

Dave Murray - κιθάρα

Adrian Smith - κιθάρα

Clive Burr - τύμπανα (πολύ αγαπημένος)

Αγαπημένα μου......;;; Όλα!!!

Βαθμολογία...

Εξώφυλλο 9/10

Παραγωγή 9/10

Δίσκος 9/10


 Για όσους δεν είναι μουσικά προσκείμενοι στην Heavy Metal, τους συνιστώ το Prodigal Son -αξίζει να το ακούσετε-

Για τους υπόλοιπους....

n'joy


1.  The Ides of March


2. Wrathchild 


I was born into a scene of angriness and greed, and dominance and persecution.
My mother was a queen, my dad I've never seen, I was never meant to be.
And now I spend my time looking all around,
For a man that's nowhere to be found.
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.

'Cause I'm a wrathchild, well I'm a wrathchild.
Yeah I'm a wrathchild. I'm coming to get you, oooh yeah.

Say it doesn't matter ain't nothin' gonna alter the course of my destination.
I know I've got to find some serious piece of mind, or I know I'll go crazy.
But now I spend my time looking all around,
For a man that's nowhere to be found.
Until I find him I'm never gonna stop searching,
I'm gonna find my man, gonna travel around.




3. Murders in the Rue Morgue  

 



I remember it as a pain day althought it happened in the dark ofthe night
I was strolling throught the streets of Paris
And it was cold it was starting to rain
And then I heard a piercing scream and I rushed to the scene ofthe crime
But all I found was butchered remains of two girls lay side byside
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Run before the killers go free
There's some people coming down the street
At last there's someone heard my call
I can't understand why they're pointing at me
I never done nothing at all
But I must have got some blood on my hands
Because everybody's shouting at me
I can't speak French so I couldn't explain
And like a fool I started running away
And now I've got to get away from the ares of the law
All France is looking for me
I've gotta find my way across the border for sure
Down south to Italy
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Running from the Gendarme
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home
Well I made it to the front of the block
But I can't wipe the scene from my mind
And the Gendarmes are chasin' me
Well I just started running around
Well I'm moving throught the shadows tonight
Away from the staring eyes
Any day they'll be looking for me
Cause I know that I show the signs of...
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Someone call the Gendarmes
Murders in the Rue Morgue
Runnin' from the ares of the law
It was the law on my trail
I'm running out of places to hide
Should I return to the scene of the crime
When it's you they're looking for
If I could go directly to hell
To get me out of troubles for sure
But I know that it's on my mind
And I've got to say I've done it before
Murders in the Rue Morgue
They've gone from me
Murders in the Rue Morgue
I'm never going home


4. Another Life 
 
 
 
 
As I lay here lying on my bed
Sweet voices come into my head.
Oh what it is, I want to know
Please won't you tell me it's got to go.
There's a feeling that's inside me
Telling me to get away.
But I'm so tired of living
I might as well end today.

But I'm so tired of living

5. Genghis Khan 
 
 
 
 6. Innocent Exile 
 
 
 
My life is so empty, nothing to live for.
My mind is all confusion, 'cause I defied the law.
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran.
I never had no trouble before this all began.

My life is so empty, nothing to live for.
My mind is all confusion, 'cause I defied the law.
When you weren't there to help me, I lost my mind and ran.
I never had no trouble before this all began.

I'm running away, no where to go.
I'm lost and tired and I just don't know, yeah,
They say I killed a woman, they know it isn't true.
They're just trying to frame me, and all because of you, yeah


7. Killers 
 
 
 
You walk through the subway, his eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, his blood lust defies all his needs.

My innocent victims are slaughtered with wrath and despise,
The mocking religion of hatred that burns in the night.
I have no one, I'm bound to destroy all this greed,
A voice inside me compelling to satisfy me.

I can see what a knife's meant to be,
And you'll never know how I came to foresee, see, see.

My faith in believing is stronger than lifelines and ties,
With the glimmer of metal my moment is ready to strike.

Death call arises, a scream breaks the still of the night,
Another tomorrow, remember to walk in the light!
I have found you, and now there is no place to run,
Excitement shakes me, oh God help me what have I done?!
Oh yeah, I've done it!
Yeah!

You walk through the subway, my eyes burn a hole in your back,
A footstep behind you, he lunges prepared for attack.
Scream for mercy, he laughs as he's watching you bleed,
Killer behind you, my blood lust defies all my needs.
Oh look out, I'm coming for you!


8. Prodigal Son 
 
 
 
 Listen to me Lamia, listen to what I've got to say.
I've got these feelings, and they won't go away.
I've got these fears inside that'll bring me to my knees.
Oh help me Lamia or I'm sure I'll die, oh please.

I feel unsettled, now I know that I've done wrong.
I've messed around with mystic things and magic for too long.
I feel I'm being paid with this nightmare inside me,
The devil's got a hold on my soul and he just won't let me be.

I'm on my knees, oh help me please.
I'm on my knees, help me please.

Oh Lamia please try to help me.
The devil's got a hold of my soul and he won't let me be.
Lamia I've got this curse, I'm turning to bad.
The devil's got a hold of my soul, and it's driving me mad. Oh

Oh Lamia please try to help me.
The devil's got a hold of my soul and he won't let me be.
Lamia I've got this curse, I'm turning to bad.
The devil's got a hold of my soul, and it's driving me mad. Oh


9. Purgatory 
 
 
 
Thinking of an age old dream, places I have never seen,
Fantasies lived times before.
I split my brain, melt through the floor.

Over clouds my mind will fly, forever now I can't think why.
My body tries to leave my soul.
Or is it me, I just don't know.
Memories rising from the past, the future's shadow overcast.
Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led.

Oh another time, another place.
Oh another smile on another face.
When you see me floating up beside you,
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you.

Please take me away, take me away, so far away.
Please take me away, take me away, so far away.
Please take me away, take me away, so far away.

Thinking of an age old dream, places I have never seen,
Fantasies lived times before.
I split my brain, melt through the floor.

Over clouds my mind will fly, forever now I can't think why.
My body tries to leave my soul.
Or is it me, I just don't know.
Memories rising from the past, the future's shadow overcast.
Something's clutching at my head, through the darkness I'll be led.

Oh another time, another place.
Oh another smile on another face.
When you see me walking up beside you,
You get the feeling that all my love's inside of you.

Please take me away, take me away, so far away.
Please take me away, take me away, so far away.
Please take me away, take me away, so far away.


10. Drifter
 
 
 
Walk away!

Look out now, baby won't you take me away,
Sittin' here its gonna be a new day.
Gotta sing my song and I can't go wrong,
Gotta keep on roaming, gotta sing my song.

What you feeling when you hold me tight?
I'm gonna cuddle up with you tonight, gonna get you feeling so secure.
listen child don't you see there's a cure?
Anywhere got to get you away, feels so good think it's gonna be a new day.
I'm gonna get my song till I can't go on,
I'm gonna keep on roaming gonna sing my song.

I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.
I want you to sing it, sing it, sing it, sing it along.
