The 1983 yearboook from the South Gate High School in South Gate, California featuring some of the earliest pictures of SLAYER is being auctioned via eBay.

According to a posting on the auction page, "This is an extreme rarity. This is an annual/yearbook that features some of the earliest pictures from SLAYER. This yearbook is from South Gate High School in South Gate California where SLAYER got their first start and a slew of bands followed their path.

"This yearbook came out in 1983, so the pictures were probably taken around 1982, making this the pre-'Show No Mercy' era.

"There are a total of six pictures in this annual featuring SLAYER. All the original and current members of SLAYER are pictured here. Kerry King is using his original BC Rich Mockingbird guitar before he put tar (or whatever it was) to decorate it. The fourth picture shows Jeff Hanneman with a buzz haircut (he was the punk influence in the band).

"In this auction I [the seller] will also include a set of flyers from the era where SLAYER played around the South Gate area, and features more pictures from the band at this time."

The auction ends on April 26 at 21:55:04 PDT.

Very cool... I actually have a Russian version of "Live Undead" with 3 of the 4 tracks from "Haunting The Chapel" on it as bonus tracks.

Of course, I've got both of the original Metal Blade CDs too... :lol:

Author Joel McIver has placed a third and final excerpt from his forthcoming book, "The Bloody Reign of Slayer", online at http://www.joelmciver.co.uk. The excerpt, which features the band and associated personnel discussing the ferocious opening tracks of the classic 1986 album "Reign in Blood", has been released three weeks before publication of the book, which will be released globally by the industry leader Omnibus Press on June 9. Its foreword was collectively written by all four members of MUNICIPAL WASTE.

McIver, the author of the best-selling 2004 biography "Justice for All: The Truth about Metallica" and the recent BLACK SABBATH book "Sabbath Bloody Sabbath" (hailed by the Telegraph as "excellent" and the Sun as "brilliant") previously stated about his new book, "An all-encompassing biography of SLAYER is long overdue. With their profile at an all-time high thanks to their recent Grammy wins and a run of critically-acclaimed DVDs and albums, there's never been a better time to tell their shocking story in full detail."

During research for "The Bloody Reign of Slayer", McIver interviewed a huge number of metal musicians, including the following:
