Exclusive: Watch New Video From SAULT Featuring KAMELOT & ARCANIUM Members

Rhythm-driven heavy rock band Sault – featuring members of internationally acclaimed power metal group Kamelot and groove metal outfit Arcanium, and guest appearances by members of King Diamond, One Eyed Doll and more – are releasing their debut full-length album, Seeds Of Power, today, March 2nd. To coincide with it, the band teamed up with us at Prog Sphere for an exclusive premiere of a new video for the song “Last Man Standing.” Watch it below. The video features Michael McCallum and Pat Bird as actors, and was directed by Pat Bird, Pat Dowdle, and Jasper Thewes at Bad Trip Design.

The new video is the second of two videos shot with producer Roy Warner – the first being video for the single “Adonai.” Unlike “Adonai” that was shot in a studio in Detroit Michigan, band takes for “Last Man Standing” were shot in a warehouse reserved for artist. The story line was filmed in the outskirts of town in a wooded area. The band and producer’s crew all brainstormed after the initial shoot to come up with a plot for the story line. Sault didn’t want it to look dystopian or to look old school either; they were aiming for somewhere in the middle. The story meshed well with the music and captures an element of suspense, and the hero of the story did a great job of building up the character to become, in fact, the Last Man Standing.

Bassist and composer Sean Tibbets commented about the song: “When I originally wrote the song I wasn’t sure I wanted to use it. But once the guys in the band started putting their own vibe and feel to the song it became this crushing riff that sticks in your head. It is my personal favorite Sault song so far.

Sault originally formed in 2014 as a solo project of acclaimed bassist Sean Tibbetts, who sought to write hookier metallic rock music while not in the studio or touring with his full-time band Kamelot. After deciding to branch the project out to a full band, Tibbetts joined forces with solo guitarist/tattooist Curtis Jay, and – after an introduction via One Eyed Doll and Sault guest vocalist Kimberly Freeman – linked up with singer Benjamin Riggs of groove metal group Arcanium. Seeds of Power features the talents of two rotating drummers – Matt Thompson (King Diamond) and Casey Grillo (Kamelot).
