A Higher Form of Killing is the second studio album by the metal band, Intruder. It marks their departure from the speed metal sound displayed on their previous album in favor of a thrash metal sound. Unlike their previous album which was recorded as a four-piece band, this album was recorded as a quintet with the addition of Greg Messick on rhythm guitar.


It was originally released in 1989 by Metal Blade and Roadrunner Records, but was reissued on Lost and Found records in 2005, limited to 1,000 copies.
