New York, NY (Top40 Charts) 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 archenemy 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 humor of classic sci-fi b-movies.

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 and Season Of The Endings are two groovy metal pounding numbers dominated by huge solid riffs made to bang your head to. Desert Europa is a deep slow doom-laden song with black metal influences characterized by a soulful raspy metal vocal. Just Another Day and People Don't Die are both spaced out ballads. Gorguss is a catchy doom pop song with monolithic riffs and memorable cosmic melodies. Hell is Cold is the electric first single from the album written by producer Ron Goudie. Sylvanic is a song about a Bigfoot from another planet, it's a powerful crossover between classic rock and 90's metal. Finally, Mos is a pure noise drone written together with Mos DJ.

The album was 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.
Damned Pilots are influenced by Kiss, Monster Magnet, Trouble, Beatles, Mayhem, Turbonegro, Voivod, Ghost, Devil's Blood, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd & ELO.
Damned Pilots are:
Vocals/Guitar - SGT OTE | Guitar - Willer Hertz | Drums - Don Nutz | Bass - EriK Space
