Vocalist Angela Gossow of ARCH ENEMY — who are touring North America as part of Gigantour 2006 (also featuring LAMB OF GOD, OPETH, OVERKILL, THE SMASHUP, INTO ETERNITY and SANCTITY in addition to the headliner MEGADETH) — has posted the following message on her MySpace page:"Chicago, Columbus and Detroit rocked! Especially Chicago the crowd was insane! And to everybody who is coming out the signings: Thank you for buying our stuff and your wonderful words. Meeting you all is pure fuel for the soul. "Last night I joined MEGADETH on stage during the chorus of 'Peace Sells'. It was a 10-seconds-ultra-rush. I stood at the side of the stage, not feeling too nervous. Then you get the 'Go' sign from the stage manager, who is also watching the fireworks. I run up to Dave's mic and then suddenly IT hit me. I AM STANDING NEXT TO DAVE MUSTAINE, SINGING PEACE SELLS AND HEARING IS VOICE TOGETHER WITH MINE. I believe my heart exploded at this moment. And my brain. I got it on video cam so I can watch it again. I can hardly believe I WAS THERE. MUST. DO. IT. AGAIN. We will put the file on the website in a few days.. "We ended up in MEGADETH's dressing room that night. Fast-forward at this point, haha. I am not sure how we made it back on OUR bus. I know I had a huge craving for anything carb- and sugar-fueled. I believe I had one hand in a tortilla chips bag while holding a bar of chocolate in the other. I recall listening to early NIHILIST demos and finding it MINDBLOWING. I am amazed I managed to brush my teeth and getting into bed. Any conversation I had with whoever met me that night: I hope I made sense. I thought the world was hilarious and the floor felt like rubber. Enough, you are getting the point. "Tomorrow we will be in Toronto! I heard the venue is almost sold out! This is going to be a blast. We will record our set live, so I hope our friends out there will make some serious noise for us!"
