Machine Head frontman Rob Flynn wrote to MTV's Headbanger's Blog to explain why the song "Halo" was shortened from nine minutes to five minutes for the video.
"I write to you from the surprisingly frigid city of Madrid, Spain, where we are on tour as direct support to Metallica right now (woo-fuckin’- hoo!!!), and when we got the news about our video being premiered this Saturday, we were super stoked, to say the least!!! We are especially proud of this video, as it challenged us creatively and we feel it is completely unique to anything out there right now in metal or in mainstream music."
Rob also goes on to explain:
"Our friend Dean Modino at Modino Media Design was able to take these very crude, one dimensional metal carvings, bring them to life and give them some motion. He did a fucking killer job!!! While it was/is a massive bummer that we had to edit our glorious nine minute epic down to a puny five minute epic, there we’re several factors that played a role. Basically, doing a nine minute video is like doing two videos, and financially as well as logistically, it became a nightmare. So it got chopped!! We fucking dig the shit out of it, though, and while it pains us more than anyone to have to remove four minutes out of our song, the video turned out fucking sick!!!!!!!! We know you guys are gonna really dig it, because we really dig it, and you all know the meticulously high standards we hold ourselves to."
