8 Foot Sativa Biography
Hailing from New Zealand 8 Foot Sativa are no newbies to the Heavy Metal scene. Their ferocity as a live act leaves a deep footprint where ever they tread. Formed in 1998 by guitarist Gary Smith and bass player Brent Fox, 8 Foot Sativa have survived the test of time and still to this day hold the title of the “Heavy Weights “of New Zealand Heavy Metal.

8 Foot Sativa have punished the stage with top international bands such as Pantera, Fear Factory, Korn, SOAD, Motorhead, Soulfly, Slipknot, Disturbed and Corrosion of Conformity. Their music has been featured on Monster Garage, Crusty Demons, MTV and in the movie “The Locals”.

8 Foot Sativa’s first two albums, “Hate Made Me & Season For Assault”, threw them into the spotlight by achieving gold record status in New Zealand, still a feat that has not been achieved by any other metal artist in New Zealand. Charting in the New Zealand Top 40 was the next blow to mainstream music with 8 Foot Sativa soon becoming a household name with a cult following.

Critics said “A metal band breaking into the NZ Top 40 will never be repeated”…Wrong!

8 Foot Sativa have released their new album “The Shadow Masters” once again entering the NZ Top 40 at position number 5 and at position number 2 on the Indie charts.

    Сложилось такое ощущение, что составитель русского вики не знаком с языком, на котором оно писалось.

    @SicJesus, you just don't like heavy music (Breed the Pain). New album is basically a different band though, which kind of fucks me off, but I suppose some people like it.

    @SicJesus Hate Made Me is pretty brutal man, come on. And Breed The Pain is rad too. Other from that, I think the others aren't that good.

    I give 9 / 10 for Season for Assault. But rest albums are not so good

    Don't care, I actually miss 8 Foot Sativa. The Mark of Man is awesome, though.

    It's fair enough that they are fighting against the torture of animals. They have every right to be Vegan. I'm not one, but I am definitely against factory farming and slaughtering animals that spent their whole life ni a 1x1 metre room. [2]
