Sheltered Life PR Welcomes This Charming Man Records

We have the pleasure to announce that this week we’ll be starting work with the Muenster based label This Charming Man Records, who have been one of our favourite record labels for quite some time now. To date the label has released some inspired music from bands such Kadavar, Union Of Sleep, Messer, Modern Pets, Die Nerven, Orbit The Earth and more. From straight up psych punk and rock n’ roll through to metal, thrash and doom they really have got it all and we’re fortunate to be working with not one but two of their newest signings, The Moth and Mountain Witch. The Moth – who self-released their debut album They Fall earlier in the year – will be getting the TCM treatment with an official release on 30 September and Mountain Witch, who some of you may already know from the ultra limited Droehnhaus release (and more recently, the Witches On Fire rerelease) of Scythe & Dead Horse, who will be releasing their eagerly anticipated follow up Cold River on 28 October. We’ll have more news on both releases soon but for now check out This Charming Man Records at and keep your eyes and ears peeled.

Los Angeles’ psychedelic doom band Black Prism are set to release their debut 7” single ‘Satan’s Country’ via EasyRider Records on 31 August. Not just for doom-metal fanatics, it’s an epic record for all fans of guitar driven rock ‘n’ roll, stoner rock and good times.

On ‘Satan’s Country’, Black Prism successfully turn out an instant classic in the realm of early 70s Black Sabbath inspired acid rock with a Manson Family aesthetic that will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand to attention. An unholy conception of hard rock ritual and cinematic kismet, like a shot in the vein of fellow ‘born-outta-timers’ Uncle Acid & The Deadbeats and Kadavar.

About Black Prism:
Formed in 2012, the band is made up of native Los Angelenos that skateboard, ride choppers and raise hell the way that their music does. This is the first offering of theirs and the demo that got the band signed. There will be a full length record to come in the first quarter of 2014 on EasyRider Records, until then you will have to sit tight with this unrestrained release of pure hellfire and heavy rock that has the power to steal your soul if you let it.

Tartarus to Release Limited Edition Cougar Club Cassette
