Meant to describe something that doesn't actually exist. Generally refers to Evanescence music compilations released by independent companies.

Ultra Rare Trax Volumes 1, 2 & 3

In 2003, one of the more elaborate and competent compilations was produced. Ultra Rare Trax features most of Evanescence's pre-fallen era Demos and EPs in very good CD quality. The CDs come in Digipack style cases with Fallen era promo photos (mostly of Amy) and are of moderate professional quality.

The compilations state that they were produced by Wind-up Records "FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY. NOT FOR SALE", however the presence of the last track on vol. 3 suggests otherwise. They were made in Hong Kong.

Origin (2003 "re-release")

Fake Release

In 2003, a "re-release" of Origin came out supposedly under the label 'Epic' although was in fact a fake. It contained most of the tracks from the real Origin, however with some tracks, different versions were used. In the case of Whisper and My Immortal, the Fallen versions were used. Also, the first "Where Will You Go" is actually the Evanescence EP version, and "Where Will You Go (reprise)" is the version that appears on Origin.

The audio portion of the CD was very poorly produced, and in most cases, the songs were either corrupted or of low quality (as if downloaded as an MP3 and then burned on the CD). This bootleg has very elaborate and professional looking artwork, with a silk screened, factory pressed CD and a fold out booklet with a small biography (which mostly rambles on about the 'Christian band' controversy).

The CD contained 'Bonus Tracks' such as Missing (which is very corrupted and of extremely low quality), the Nirvana cover 'Heart-Shaped Box', and a [rather bad] trance remix of Bring Me To Life.

The CD itself has a red silkscreen with black bird design with the word "sorry" on it. The jewel case has a gothic red design with a speckled face on the back along with the track listing. The inside tray artwork has an image of the band (the one from the booklet in Fallen). The cover has a skull design that is similar to the actual album released by the band. The most noticeable difference is the Evanescence Logo, which is pointy and unlike any design officially released by the band.

On the back artwork the fine print/credits are actually copied from the back of Fallen.
