If You Loved 80s Metal But Didn’t Think It was OTT Enough…

…then say hello to Peelander-Z.  Yes, I spelled that correctly.

The band–based out of Brooklyn but have ties to Japan–are into power metal reminiscent of Motley Crue, Accept and Def Leppard on down.  And for added authenticity, they only use vintage 80s gear to create their sound.

I say we set these guys up against Steel Panther in a cage match.
