Does anyone know if there are any reissues planned? As noted before, almost everything by OC is very expensive...

I was hoping the Tesco Archaic series might unearth something nice from them.

On the other hand, judging by the dates in brackets,  it does rather seem to be a collection of unrelated tracks - some of which were recorded 15 years apart. In any case, I ordered a copy, so we'll just have to wait and see.  Hopefully it'll be better than the Singular Cleansweep Operations CD, which I never listen to.

Yet to listen this more than - LP once, 7" more. My first impression is a bit like Burdizzo says -  acollection of unrelated tracks - some of which were recorded 15 years apart.
It is not obstacle to make a good album, and that's what this is. It is good, yet I think side III (a-side of 7") is easily best. The most aggressive track of album. A lot of other tracks fall into did I hear this already -category. That song is good, yet build on the very basic elements of heavy electronics.

Of course, Operation Cleansweep has it's legacy and historical merit. For me, Powerhungry is absolute masterpiece and groundbreaking work at those time. Usage of samples, heavy throbbing pulsations and such, not something very common in those days. But now, it's 2018, and when you look for example Unrest roster, and put this LP+7" next to Kevlar, Abscheu and such... those bands seems hungry for experiment further, hungry to conquer and attack, while Operations Cleansweep tracks seems sort of... just maintaining what has been good in O.C., yet zero attempt to take step further.

I like what I hear, yet I can't help thinking that bunch of bands have tastier samples, more ripping sounds, somehow more innovative usage of back-to-basics heavy electronics elements. So being somewhat a O.C. fanboy, and their work having influenced me in past, it is very very hard - if not impossible, to objectively listen album. It works in both ways. They got the history, where is hard to match expectations one may have. And then they also got listener approaching it from fanboy basis. Appreciating the standard synth tone with typical drum machine rhythm and conclude this is just the thing O.C. is know for.  Yet, as little objective approach, one thinks genre and several active groups have passed what O.C. is doing, and went to explore further. Be it more innovative, more brutal, or something.

Surely, I will listen more before final conclusions. And what is sure, this is massively better than Singular Cleansweep Operations CD!

That's a good summary, all right. The tracks on the 7'' are certainly more forceful, and seem to have been recorded when OC were still 'current'. Why were they not released then, I wonder? Did they not make the grade, or just not fit? And while it's not exactly apathy-inducing, the LP is a bit smoother and has less bite than what they put out in their heyday. Graustich's new LP carries the old OC flag better - partly, I suppose, because of the Aryan Nations samples, but also because of the underlying malevolence that seems to have somehow slipped away from the new, mellower OC!

I have a few copies in stock now. Unfortunately I have to charge a LOT more than I would like, as wholesale was quite expensive and registered shipping from Italy was obscene.

I've only listened once so far, but I'm certainly not disappointed.

The first OC album is being reissued on CD by Tesco in January and will feature extended versions of some tracks plus a bonus track (I wish the cover art wasn’t so bad though...): https://tesco-germany.com/produkt/operation-cleansweep-release-now-hungry-for-power-cd-pre-order-6-1-2020/
