Thereīs another thread open here: http://www.progarchives.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=52324&PID=2990667
 
They havenīt been evaluated by the Progressive Metal Team yet. Is that where they would fit best in your opinion. People on the other thread talk about melancholic rock. Are there enough metal elements to warrant an inclusion in progressive metal?

Well judging from their last album...Leaving Eden, I totally agree with this.

Well despite the above doubts the PMT have cleared Antimatter and if anyone should feel the urge to write a bio that would be much appreciated.

Antimatter was formed in 1998, by ex-ANATHEMA bass player and song writer, Duncan Patterson, and Mick Moss, a musician who had up to that time, played with several unsigned bands. As a pair, Patterson and Moss released three albums together: Saviour, Lights Out and Planetary Confinement. Shortly after the completion and release of the third effort, Planetary Confinement, Duncan Patterson left the pair to form his own group, Íon. Continuing without his former partner, Mick Moss kept the project alive, releasing its fourth and most recent album, Leaving Eden, with current Anathema guitarist Danny Cavanagh.

The first two albums released by this collaboration were made with a musical focus on melodic, layered vocal lines and an often borderline techno melancholic rock sound, with ambient post-rock overtones. This was often achieved by using techniques such as layering the vocals of female guest musicians to create an eerie effect and ambience. Acoustic guitar riffs and rhythmic sections also helped to give this duo their unique sound. After the departure of Duncan Patterson from the project, the sound rapidly changed and evolved, now developing a more metallic based sound brought on by Danny's input. The early atmospheric sounds are now mostly gone, replaced with a more guitar oriented rock sound, which has earned the band a favor amongst prog metal lovers the world over.

Antimatter is easily recommendable to fans post-metal, post-rock and prog metal, their two most recent albums containing a sound akin to Anathema, Porcupine Tree, Katatonia and many other rock groups with atmospheric overtones.

Glad to see them added, and I agree that Experimental / Post Metal is a lot more appropriate than Progressive Metal.
