"Though currently considered one of the most legendary releases in hip hop's storied history the project was independently produced and released in 1999 and issued on Bobbito's Fondle 'Em imprint. Stripped down hip-hop in all its glory, the release cemented the MC's return to the scene after his early years in the group KMD. As the story goes, Doom had been chewed up and spit out of the major label system, lost his brother and musical partner Subroc, and then disappeared only to return to the stage rocking a mask and an obscured identity. In under two years, Operation: Doomsday was already reissued on another label with an altered track list. During the time Doom started working with Madlib on the Madvillain record, Doomsday went out of print, got bootlegged, and somewhere along the way emerged as a hip-hop classic. Now we are proud to present Metalface's cassette edition of Operation: Doomsday. Housed in a metal box, the set contains two cassettes. Tape one features the original album and original cover by Lord Scotch 79 (Blake 'KEO' Lethem). Tape two collects the instrumentals, B-sides and alternate versions, along with the 2011 album cover by Jason Jagel."
