Heart of a Killer is Winters Bane’s debut album, released in 1993. It is a partial concept album, with the first six songs detailing the story of a judge who sentences a murderer to death, and soon afterwards has his heart replaced with the killer’s in a transplant operation.

Heart of a Killer was re-released by Century Media in 2000, featuring a bonus disc comprising a live recording from a radio broadcast and a demo. A live recording of the band performing as a Judas Priest tribute band British Steel was submitted to Judas Priest by someone who knew the band, convincing them to hire Tim Owens as a replacement for Rob Halford in 1996.
