Landau's quantization for incompletely nested Fermi surfaces is known to give rise to magnetic-fieldinduced spin-density waves (FISDW's) in two-dimensional organic metals. Here we show that threedimensional (3D) systems can have 3D-specific series of FISDW phases as energetically stable states, for which we clarify how and why they appear as the magnetic field is tilted. Each phase is characterized by a quantized Hall effect for each Σxy and Σzx that reside on a fractal-like Hofstadter's butterfly.
