Damned Pilots announce the release of their new CD Overgalaxy via Sliptrick Records (Dec 15th, 2016). Overgalaxy is a steam punk concept album. As drummer / founder Don Nutz says, ‘it’s built on the story of four cartoon characters, Don Nutz, Sgt Ote, Willer Hertz and Erik Space …aka The Damned Pilots. They travel through space in the year 2500 A.C. on a 1970’s hippy van customized to fight against their arch-enemy Gorguss and his evil empire’. The lyrics, written by Sgt Ote, are about love and hate, war and peace, past and future, rebellions against failed systems, all imbued with the sensibilities and humour of classic sci-fi b-movies.
The CD has been recorded at Track Terminal Studio in Trieste, Italy by Francesco Bardy, except ‘Just Another Day’ and ‘People Don’t Die’ which were recorded at Voodoosound Studios in Ijmuiden, Holland by Paul van Rijswijk. Overgalaxy is produced by Ron Goudie (Gwar, Death Angel, Poison) and mixed and mastered by legendary producer Bill Metoyer (W.A.S.P., Trouble, Slayer). The artwork has been made by Philippine graphic designer Uzi Emperado.
Overgalaxy includes nine songs written by Don Nutz and Sgt Ote and one by Ron Goudie (Hell Is Cold). Their style varies from mid tempo groovy metal to doom metal plus psychedelics ballads all strung together by catchy melodies.
Damned Pilots are influenced by Kiss, Monster Magnet, Trouble, Beatles, Mayhem, Turbonegro, Voivod, Ghost, Devil’s Blood, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd & ELO.
