SLAYER came up with new product in 1998 with the 'Diabolus In Musica' album and appeared on the bill of the 'Ozzfest show' at Milton Keynes during June. 'Diabolus In Musica' opened with 46,000 units sold in its first week of sale in the USA, debuting at number 31 on the national Billboard charts. The group had been scheduled to appear on the American dates but the spot on the bill eventually went to MEGADETH.
In 1999 SLAYER teamed up with Berlin Techno-Punks ATARI TEENAGE RIOT to mould the track 'No Remorse (I Wanna Die') for the 'Godzilla' movie soundtrack. 2000 saw SLAYER contributing their take on 'Hand Of Doom' for the BLACK SABBATH tribute album 'Nativity In Black 2'. Araya had also been writing material with Max Cavalera of SOULFLY, the track 'Terrorist' being featured on SOULFLY's 2000 album. Not to be outdone King features a guest guitar solo on the cut 'Goddamned Electric' from PANTERA's 2000 album 'Reinventing The Steel'.
SLAYER included the track 'Bloodline' on the movie soundtrack album 'Dracula 2000'.
