You did not misread it, I may have a flaw in my understanding of Dark Eldar. I have been under the assumption that they somehow send souls to Slaanesh to fend him/her/it off of them OR that they somehow consume souls to prolong their lives to prevent their eventual deaths and thus consumption by Slaanesh.
Perhaps their line of thinking, if my latter belief is true, that by killing Angron and offering his soul to Slaanesh it may somehow fend it off a little longer. Of coarse, I lack any real knowledge of Xenos races in 40k.

Just wanted to point out, in the third Soul Drinker book, we see Dark Eldar actually working for Slaanesh in hopes in becoming a Deamon prince for her instead of her meal.
It backfires ofcourse, but he was a Slaanesh worshiper and Eldar
