JASON W. WALTON (AGALLOCH) Streaming New Track “Yakshi”

Agalloch/Self Spiller’s Jason W. Walton has premiered the second track to his new 7″ solo release, Mara, over at Decibel. The new track is the unsettling, droning “Yakshi”, which sounds as if you are trapped inside a pitch black abyss in which unseen, inhuman organisms are flying around you waiting for their chance to strike. Obsequiae‘s Tanner Anderson lends his throat-searing vocals to the track, only driving it further into frightening territory. Walton offered the following comments on the track:

“I wrote the Mara EP as a way to process and document my episodes with sleep paralysis…’Yakshi’ is the second and final track of Mara, and deals with the terror and helplessness one experiences when in the throes of sleep paralysis. In this state, your mind is awake, yet your body is paralyzed. Your cries of desperation travel no further than your own head and are obscured by the buzzing waves of darkness. ‘Yakshi’ encapsulates this experience and gives me surges of anxiety each time I listen.”

Check it out at this location and stream the previously released track, “Alp”, if you missed it.
