DragonForce have treated their 2019 Extreme Power Metal cut Strangers to an all-new music video, which sees the four-piece embrace a substantial amount of ‘80s glam cheese in a bid to “pay tribute to everything ‘80s”.

Aside from featuring some impressively hair-sprayed wigs and era-appropriate attire, the video also sees the band’s resident shred heroes Herman Li and Sam Totman pull out all the stops in the electric guitar department, and wield Steve Vai’s Whitesnake and David Lee Roth-era six-strings.
