8 Foot Sativa  


8 Foot Sativa has been a popular band in their native New Zealand for a number of years, having formed in 1998 by high school friends Brent Fox and Gary Smith, the latter of whom survives as the sole original member after countless lineup changes over the years. Their style, as evidenced on 2006's Poison Of Ages, is a blend of deathy thrash, hardcore, and a bit of melodic death metal.
