Los Angeles thrashers SLAYER have cancelled their previously announced appearance at the third edition of the Monterrey Metal Fest, set to take place Saturday, September 23, 2006 at the Coca Cola Auditorium in the city of Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico. SLAYER, who were scheduled to headline the event, cited "personal reasons" as the cause of the cancellation.

This year's Monterrey Metal Fest is being billed as "Hell and Heaven United" due to the fact that the festival will include appearances by reunited Christian hard rockers STRYPER and Satanic death metallers DEICIDE. The concert, which promises to be the "biggest and baddest version yet," will feature eight of the biggest names in heavy metal music from all over the world on the main stage and 12 up-and-coming international and Mexican bands on the second stage.

"Christ Illusion" first-week chart positions:

Germany: #2
Finland: #2
Canada: #3
Sweden: #4
USA: #5
Austria: #6
Holland: #8
Australia: #9
Norway: #10
