For any music fanatic devoted to the hardcore genre, the name Shelter is not unfamiliar. This New York-based group is best known for its founder and frontman, Ray Cappo, who is considered as one of the most prominent representatives of the charismatic 'krishnacore' scene, which conjoins the elements of hardcore music with a strong spiritual message based on Krishna Consciousness. Formed in the early 90's, Shelter was Cappo's second band - previously he was the frontman of Youth of Today, a straightedge hardcore group, in its time highly acclaimed by the underground community. Limited to 2,000 copies!
Hard to enter but great once I did so.

"I bought this CD thanks to a video I saw on TV.Then I listened to the whole album, it was a bit disappointing;several weeks after I lost it for about a year and then heard it again and LOVED IT! The song are a good mixture of hard,fast and full of energy hardcore with melodic "poppy" parts. There is also a lot to think about the lyrics, even if you disagree. If you like hard rock,punk and of course hardcore you must have this album. If not, try it and you will have a nice surprise."
Not Shelter at their best

"I have 2 Shelter albums in addition to this one, and the others are way better. They are much more hardcore and less poppy. When I got this album I was expecting "Perfection Of Desire", but the songs on "Mantra" were much slower, happier, and lighter. If perhaps you thought Shelter's older stuff, or Youth of Today was too hard, then maybe this album is for you; otherwise stick with their older stuff."
