2007 Pressing. Sealed!

Shelter was a New York based hardcore act that emerged from the straight-edge scene in the early 90's by vocalist Ray Cappo, who was a practicing Hare Krishna that enjoyed a lifestyle of clean and virtuous living. It's funny to think that he chose rock and roll as a profession, isn't it? Although, it might partially explain the development of music more "non-threatening" in nature as found on the two Roadrunner (currently Metal Mind) releases. Originally released in 1995, Mantra stands as the bands introduction into a more melodic and accessible take on the hardcore style as differentiated from previous band output.
