In April 2003 Abaco released its first 4-track demo, recorded at Frank Reijgersberg (also Racoon, Cooper, Nuff Said). That same month Abaco had it's debut-performance, more shows followed soon, e.g. at De Melkweg, Amsterdam (with Chevelle) and Despotes Festival (near Nijmegen).

Lords Of Metal
"Very balanced, complex and above all extremely good!"

Oor magazine
"Het viertal doet wel degelijk aan een inventieve tak van stoner grunge die - gedomineerd door sombere, onrustig omrollende gitaarriffs en donkergetinte stevige-halen-vocalen - in vier nummers heerlijk zwaar op de maag valt."

Roadburn
"Abaco have fused elements of Tool and Messugah to come up with a very interesting take on stoner and math-rock that is completly infectious."
