I have never heard that 3rd line and find it highly suspect
I have seen this line since the "Gaunt's Ghost" series. I beleive it was a frenzied Cultist warrior that shouted that at Rawne before he blew his head off during the Siege of Vervun Hive. In any case I am going to check on this, but i know i have heard those three lines in sync before.
It may have been something if these had been mortal servants of Khorne who could relish the act, but the daemons themselves would not be able to feed off their own energies would they? And with the tyranids having no souls to give, the daemons' starvation and defeat was inevitable.
They would not have feed anyway. As I said before Khorne was created mainly from a "HUMAN," emotion. Therefore he requires Blood, not Ichor. He needs Souls, not Base Instinct. He also needs an intelligent enemy for his warriors to fight, not a creature that is driven by a general collective. It would be like the Borg trying to Assimilate the Undine from Star Trek.....it just wouldn't happen.
Living metal is a name given to describe the metal's regenerative properties. It is no more living than any other metal or rock. Necrons cannot be absorbed in any way by the tyranids, and there is certainly no way tyranids could ever utilize gauss technology. That's just foolish.
It's still physical mass though right? The Necrons Warriors are "Constructs," as their own Codex calls them, and that they are made of metal. Ja?
If it looks like a Chicken, walks like a Chicken, it is a Chicken Serpion. I think whole heartedly the3 Nids would consume it, and probably put the unique metal to some interesting uses. I mean they consumed Leman Russes during the Battle of Macragge, and they started pumping out Carnifex's with some near invincible armor plating.
What I would ask, and perhaps you know the answer, is why the Nids seem to avoid them? Why do the Hive Minds take drastic steps to steer entire fleets away from Necron Tomb Worlds? Have they fought them before, or do they recognize the threat they present?

This is true, but what is the difference between Pure and Corrupt Biomass??? Really it's material either way
Like wise Nurgle's diseases aren't always corporeal. A supernatural disease would require a supernatural adaption, not an evolutionary one
