Gone Is Gone is a heavy-duty cross-pollinate whose debut album “Echolocation” feels like the soundtrack to impending doom, or the escape from it. The quartet have a lot of lines on their resumés: singer/bassist Troy Sanders with Mastodon; guitarist Troy Van Leeuwen with Queens of the Stone Age, Failure, A Perfect Circle and Eagles of Death Metal; drummer Tony Hajjar with At the Drive-In; and multi-instrumentalist/composer Mike Zarin, who helms the Sencit Music production company. The collaboration does indeed have its roots in soundtracking things — Zarin and Hajjar formed the project after having worked together on projects such as TV series “Stranger Things” and “Game of Thrones” and the films “Inception” and “X-Men Apocalypse.” The quartet debuted last year with a self-titled EP, and the full-length arrives Friday via Rise Records. Its weighty, experimental cinema will appeal to fans of any number of strains heavy music: prog, dark metal, doom, grunge and ambient rock. Start with the video for “Dublin;” see them live on Friday night.
