Killer Dwarfs (stylized as KiLLeR DWaRfS) are a Canadian heavy metal band who formed in late 1981 in Oshawa, Ontario, and who enjoyed moderate success in their native Canada in the 1980s. Known for their offbeat sense of humor (all band members adopted the surname "Dwarf"), they were nominated for two Juno Awards during their career. Though not British, they were sometimes compared to NWOBHM acts such as Iron Maiden and Saxon.[1]

The original lineup consisted of Russ Graham (vocals), and Darrell Millar (drums), along with Bryce Trewin (guitar) and Ange Fodero (bass.) Their debut album was nominated for a Juno Award and radio stations in the US started to play their album.

It took three years before another album was released, as Trewin and Fodero both left, to be replaced by Mike hall and Bad Ronbo Mayer. The band received much recognition in Canada and the United States during the 80's, and their videos were in regular rotation at MuchMusic and on the program Headbanger's Ball. Gerry Finn replaced Hall in 1992. [2]
