This limited edition box set of Metal Fingers' Special Herbs is made up of 3 CDs. The first two, are mixed extracts from the initial ten volumes of the Special Herbs series.[1] The third disc is a collection of KMD instrumentals.[1]

The Box Set was released on January 24, 2006, limited to 7,500 copies. Reissued with some minor artwork changes to the digipak inlay cards and the disc labels in August 2012, and unlike 2006's 3-CD Special Herbs mix, this collection contains all the beats in their full, original form, making it the definitive DOOM instrumental anthology.
