    Samantha explains...

      How long you have been coming to the Megadeth forums?

      I'm never there

      Have you met the band? If so, what did you say?

      YES. First time was in a M&G in 2012, during Gigantour. I told Dave that I was there (New York) just to see them.
      Then I met them again during the M&G held in Brazil this year. I asked Dave to play the song Youthanasia that night, because it is my favorite Megadeth song and I'd been a loyal fan, who was there for my 18th concert (by that time). Well, they PLAYED it !!
      I also met David and Chris again during Jackson M&G in São Paulo and during Motorhead's Motorboat.

      What's the furthest you've traveled to see Megadeth?

      From Brazil to Gigantour in New York in 2012, From Brazil to Buenos Aires in 2012, from Belgium to Sweden in 2008, and from Brazil to Slovenia and Germany to MetalDays and Wacken in 2014.

      If you had a chance to chat with any one of the band members, who would you talk to and what would you want to discuss?

      I had the opportunity, but I'm always too embarrassed and petrified, and end up not talking about anything that would like to.

      Do you have a favorite Megadeth guitar solo?

      Tornado of Souls.

      To you, are Megadeth songs more feeling or more thinking?

      Both. Songs are more feeling, lyrics are thinking.

      Have you introduced anyone else to Megadeth?

      Yes! And I influenced some friends to become bigger fans than they were before too.

      Which Megadeth song means the most to you and why?

      Hard to answer… maybe 99 ways to die, I got impressed first time I watched the video clip

      What do you like best about being in the Cyber Army?

      Being supportive to the band and letting everybody knows how I love them.

      When did you join the club and what is your Cyber Army member number?

      Since 11/02/2011, #11506.

      What do you admire most in Dave Mustaine?

      His intelligence and incredible talent

      What are your thoughts on the new album "Super Collider"?

      There are good songs like Kingmaker and Built for war, but it’s not among my favorites.

      What does being a true Megafan mean to you?

      I am proud of being part of this family.

      Have you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?

      When I first met the band members in 2012, I told Dave that I was Brazilian. When Motorhead was about to play the song ‘Going to Brazil’, Lemmy said something about Brazilians being hot chicks and pointed to me! Well, he had no idea who I was, so I believe that Dave told him about me, and showed me from the backstage to him. It was a magical moment !

      No not so far. But this would be something on my wishlist !!!

      160 km / 2 hour ride

      If you had a chance to chat with any one of the band members, who would you talk to and what would you want to discuss?

      I would like to chat about the song writing process. Best would be to talk with everyone to get the aspects from different angles.

      Not a specific solo but the intro riff of "In My Darkest Hour" blows me everytime away. I have picked this as ringtone on my smartphone.

      I was surprised about the quality of the songs on the Super Collider album. Only killers - no fillers.
      I think that is very very rare for a band which exists so long and produced so many albums.
      There are so many bands who had great albums in the 80s but afterwards produced only crap. Not so Megadeth. You are still on top !!!
