MACHINE HEAD's web site has been updated with the following message:
"Fans from around the world answered the casting call to be a part of MACHINE HEAD's upcoming video for the song 'Halo', and it was a raging success! Directed by Mike Sloat ('Aesthetics Of Hate', 'Imperium', 'Days Turn Blue To Gray') and shot entirely in front of a green screen, the footage will all be digitally manipulated to mimic the style of the artwork from the packaging for MACHINE HEAD's new album 'The Blackening'. With shooting set to wrap up in the next few days, you can plan on seeing the new video sometime in May!"
Check out photos from the video shoot, which took place last Thursday (April 3), at this location.
MACHINE HEAD garnered the first Grammy nomination of its career for "Aesthetics of Hate", a monstrous track from the critically hailed album "The Blackening", released in March 2007. The song was nominated for "Best Metal Performance" (SLAYER eventually won the award for "The Final Six").
