Inspired by bands like Beatles, Black Sabbath, and Blue Öyster Cult, Abakas is a trio band born in 2018 from the union of Thomas Heien (bass and vocals), René Gunnerud Vandli (guitar and vocals) and Christopher Haugan (drums and vocals).

Singing about legends that become everyday life stories, and modern-day heroes who walk incognito among us, Abakas’ music is cloaked in an aura that inspires us to look within ourselves, connecting with all times and dimensions.

Honest, full-bodied and sensual, Abakas’ 6-track EP ‘Marauders’ is just the latest creative sail inflated by their creative wind, with which they give us a release with a recognizable, organic and exciting sound.

A truly expanding sonic universe, ‘Marauders’ is a rich blend rooted in rock, extracted from the early heritage of Thomas, René and Christopher, who, with a noteworthy stylistic touch, include elements, fusions and mixes of different genres, emerging with character in music scene full of rock bands who increasingly conform to certain stylistic clichés.
