|Alice Cooper singles chronology|
"Halo of Flies" is a 1973 single by rock band Alice Cooper taken from their 1971 album Killer. The single was only released in the Netherlands. The song was, according to Cooper's liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-like progressive rock suites, and was supposedly about a spy organisation.
The song was a top 10 hit in the Netherlands.
It featured a B-side, "Under My Wheels", which the band had released 2 years before. Both of the songs were featured on the album Killer (released in 1971), but "Halo of Flies" was not released as a single until 1973.
