Limited pressing of Operation Doomsday with variant cover! Sonically, this is the best it gets as the classic Doom material gets a fresh remaster from the original Fondle 'Em release. The records themselves are housed in an awesome pic sleeve featuring alternate artwork by Jason Jagel & Jeff Jank from the 2011 Metal Face reissue. Fold out poster included, an essential piece for the Doom completist. Lab heads should know the music, but here's our original review of the album as a refresher:
Zev Love X of KMD reincarnated himself as MF Doom the masked villain who came out the ashes of death (RIP Subroc) and major label weakness (fuc Elektra). He blasted back on the scene with a series of acclaimed Fondle 'Em vinyl releases (which now go for $$$$). All of a sudden, his early material was gone. Luckily MF has released a new pressing of his full length which includes all 89.9 classics like "Dead Bent" (yes!), "Red and Gold," and "Gas Drawls." The production is rough and the guests stanky the way like we like it. Classic NY underground. 18 tracks in all.
