THE MOUNTAIN GOATS Covered PARADISE LOST's "The Longest Winter" and it's Great

In this instance it's just John Darnielle.


I've been keeping an eye out for The Mountain Goats guitarist, vocalist, and avid metal fan John Darnielle's cover of "The Longest Winter" by Paradise Lost ever since he announced its existence on Twitter a few weeks back. The cover is available now and is everything you (or I) ever dreamed it would be. The cover retains the grand solemnity of the original, while still having that downtrodden-and-down-home timbre you'd expect from Darnielle.

Darnielle's cover is one of many songs to be found on the Cover Charge: NC Artists Go Under Cover to Benefit Cat’s Cradle out July 31. All proceeds from the compilation will benefit the Cat's Cradle venue in Carrboro, NC. Pre-order a copy here.
