Deadstock find! Original copies from 2011.
It's been more than a decade since Operation: Doomsday dropped, and the album - with its abstract, stream-of-consciousness lyrics and quirky-sample-based, MPC 2000 and Roland VS 1680-produced beats - continues to stimulate the minds of music aficionados. It has seen at least two different versions on different labels, bootlegs, etc., but now it finally gets an official deluxe reissue, and this time Metalface Records does it up proper! This 4LP box set contains remastered versions of the original album, alternate tracks, b-sides, and instrumentals - all housed in a sick tin case with paper dividers and a cushioned inner box to protect each record. That's a whopping 42 tracks total of classic Doom goodness, but they hook you up with even more extras - a large 7x7 inch, 32 page lyric book AND a 10 card set of Doomsday MCs with artwork by Jason Jagel. With the way the CD lunchbox soldout with the quickness, I wouldn't hesitate to add this beast of a release to the cart immediately. A no brainer for fans of the metal faced villain. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
