"But what has Northless done for us lately? A couple of members have formed a new band, Ara, and have just released a heavy-as-fuck debut EP, that’s what. Featuring Northless singer/guitarist Erik Stenglein and bassist Jerry Hauppa, the five-song The Blessed Sleep shares many of Clandestine Abuse’s best traits—pummeling drums, guttural monster vocals, production from Hochstetler—but wraps them in a slightly slicker, more melodic package. The key word here is “slightly”—this is still straight-up, non-ironic doom metal, and not for everyone. But if you’re the type of person who salivates at lyrics like “Speaking in ancient tongues, the blind whisper the truth / Craving that which cannot be obtained, waking life forevermore,” you’re in for a ear-splitting treat."
