ARCH ENEMY Vocalist Dishes On Vegan Diet In New PETA2 Interview

If you've ever wondered what represents the arch enemy to Angela Gossow, you can find out in the ARCH ENEMY lead vocalist's exclusive interview with peta2, PETA's youth division, in which the German extreme-metal singer reveals her foremost foe: factory farming. During the chat, which can be seen below, Gossow a lifelong vegetarian opens up about why she decided to dump eggs and dairy products from her diet and go vegan for good.

"I've always been educating myself," Gossow tells peta2. "I've been watching all the documentaries about animal transport, what's happening in slaughterhouses. I know everything about the hormones, the antibiotics that you find in meat and milk products. It costs society billions of dollars for health insurance for all their heart problems, blood-pressure problems, diabetes 2."

Besides the indisputable health benefits of ditching meat and other unhealthy animal products from their diets, vegans have a smaller carbon footprint than their meat-eating counterparts and each vegan saves the lives of more than 100 animals every year.
Gossow joins an ever-growing list of musicians including THE AGONIST's Alissa White-Gluz, OTEP, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, GWAR, and LACUNA COIL's Cristina Scabbia who have teamed up with peta2 to challenge archaic, cruel attitudes about animals.
