The Mountain Goats: Satanic Messiah EP

October 10, 2008

Woo! The Mountain Goats (and by ‘Mountain Goats,’ we mean ‘John Darnielle’) just recorded a four-song EP, Satanic Messiah. It’s available for download here; donations via PayPal or Google Checkout are encouraged ($3 for the ‘congregant’ level, $6.66 for the ‘disciple’ level, and $10 for the ‘acolyte’ level). Despite the title and Darnielle’s well-known obsession with black metal, it’s classic Mountain Goats with acoustic guitar, piano and vocals (albeit somewhat darker themes than the usual). It’ll also be available as a double 7″, but in an edition strictly limited to 665 (the 666th copy will be Darnielle’s own, of course).

  1. Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be going to http://www.satanicmessiah.com from the office.


  2. Heh. I guess only very, very senior members of the federal government (I’m looking at you, VP) can be openly evil.
