Gone is Gone, a supergroup featuring the who’s who of metal and hard rock, just dropped the video for “Phantom Limb,” a song released last November for Record Store Day’s Black Friday. If you’re a fan of striking visuals to accompany your metal, you’ll be into this.
In the clip, land, ocean and sky all blend together, creating a literal sea of colour that captures the downbeat moodiness of the track. It’s like watching a bright blue painting come to life—and then take a turn for the redder.
“We shot this in one beautiful day among the ruins of Fort Dale on the isolated island of Egmont Key in the Gulf of Mexico,” said Troy Sanders, who’s also the bassist and vocalist of Mastodon. “‘Phantom Limb’ is a tale of seek and find. The song explores a cause of sensation and is inspired by one’s ability to overcome what was once there.”
Besides Sanders, Gone is Gone comprises Troy van Leeuwen of Queens of the Stone Age, Tony Hajjar of At the Drive-in, and multi-instrumentalist Mike Zarin.
