I have a question:
why when I find online infos about this album the title is "Noize" and not "Noise"?
I know that tha cover says Noise but...just curious.

Sascha Dikiciyan liked his Zs. Online, he'd often type certain song titles inconsistently, either with a Z or an S. It could be "Quake 3 Arena: Noise", or it could be "Quake 3: Arena Noize" (note also the colon on the latter title directly after the number 3, making the subtitle "Arena Noize"). I followed Sonic Mayhem a lot years back, before and directly after the "Q3A:N" album was released, and read and downloaded whatever I could on sonicmayhem.com.

Another Z swapped with an S would be the SM track "Arms Bazaar" from the "Tomorrow Never Dies" video game soundtrack, where on the "Sonic Mayhem: Music for Visual Media" CD (http://lostvgm.com/vgmrush/album.php?id=308), it was retitled "Armz Bazaar".

So, really, that's the best explanation I can give: Sascha liked his Zs. For this particular album, I always preferred to go with the printed "Quake 3 Arena: Noise" title, rather than "Quake 3: Arena Noize". If I recall, Sascha would even type the song "Noise Purge" as "Noize Purge", yet inconsistently—looking at a defunct page at sonicmayhem.com (http://www.sonicmayhem.com/frames/frame_credits%28old%29.html#quake3arena), it's typed "Noise Purge", even though the album title is "Quake 3: Arena Noize", but I'm pretty sure I remember seeing it typed "Noize Purge" on the website all those years back.

Is there any copy of it left?
I'd really like one, since the music is epic and I'd like to have it official.
