Alternative Matter features demo and
acoustic versions of well-known Antimatter songs, live recordings,
remixes, and also new recordings which have been conceived especially for this
compilation. Out now is still available: a digipack double CD with 22 unreleased
recordings and a total playing time of more than 100 minutes and as a premium
art book with more than 100(!) pages, three audio CDs and one DVD.
