"Recorded at Eastland Studios in East Los Angeles and at Gramma's Boy in Fullerton by Dan Bieranowski, THE LOVE BELOW's introductory full-length Every Tongue Shall Caress belts out thirteen high-angst numbers in under twenty-four minutes. Comprised of members of Carry The Casket, The Mistake, and Mother Speed, TLB haphazardly coalesce elements of '90s icons Fall Silent, Endeavor and Left For Dead into a sound akin to more contemporary acts like Pulling Teeth, Trash Talk and Cursed, resulting in purely unhinged mayhem."
