8
Operation: Doomsday
Critical Mass
Release Date: April 19, 2011
Label: Metal Face

by Andrew Hultkrans

After emerging in the late '90s, Daniel Dumile, a.k.a. Metal Face Doom, suffered a series of setbacks -- the death of his brother (and musical partner) Subroc, Elektra's rejection of their second KMD album. Years of despair and homelessness followed, until he reappeared in 1997 wearing a mask and releasing gnomic singles. This thoroughly original debut album -- expanded here to two CDs packaged in a lunch box with trading cards -- features dense, witty rhymes over tracks collaged from R&B and cartoon samples.
