The second album Panopticon was released on August 28th 2012 following a period of more than two years of writing and recording. Towards the end of that time a change in the line-up was made which proved to be a big improvement to the overall performance of the band, in terms of writing, recording and playing live. Joep Verduijn, an old friend from back in the day, joined us to take over vocal duties, which allowed Guido to switch to bass and back-up vocals. This turned out to provide a lot of new chemistry which is audible on the record.
The album was mastered by Jochem Jacobs at Split Second Sound studios in Amsterdam.
Epic Fuel's debut album Singularity was recorded during the summer of 2009 at an improvised studio with the help of Bas Buissink, after almost two years of writing by Hugo and Guido.
The tracks differ in intention with heavy and powerful grooves and vocals varying from melodic to aggressive. At the end of 2009 the album was mastered at Gold Soundz Mastering studios, and in January 2010 it was released online independently next to several hundred physical copies containing artwork. Since its release the album has been downloaded about 50.000 times. Available for downloading and physical order [here]

As we are operating totally independently as a band, we don't have any record label or such helping us out financially when it comes to the costs of recording and all that goes with it. However that is all perfectly fine since we're not doing this to make a whole lot of money.
With that said, if you enjoy our music and would like to hear more from us in the future, we would be very grateful if you would like to make a donation. Any amount helps!
