Love the fact that these dudes are all about the black leather. They all have at least one piece of leather (or perhaps "pleather") clothing on. In addition, they have the requisite studded wristbands and belts. Yep, this is a metal band. No question about that.
Blondie was sporting his own band's T-shirt, so I (now that I have mastered the incredibly difficult tasking of using the "Magic Eraser" tool in Photoshop) had to black that out. The graphic on the Tee is still visible, but good luck using that to figure it out.
Best thing about this photo is that the dudes seem to be arranged by height from shortest to tallest. The guy on the right seems like a giant compared to his bandmates, although maybe that's just the camera perspective.
Have at it...
Update: So, "Anonymous" has correctly ID'd these guys as Savage Steel from Mississaugua, Ontario (Canada). Yet another New Renaissance Records band from the mid '80s. I'll refer you to all my previous New Ren band posts as to how I feel about SS. They may have been a decent band but you wouldn't have known it by the terrible recording and even worse album artwork on that first album. Witness:
