About

Farr's first orchestral piece that is based on the Hebrew myth of the demonic Lilith, the second being Queen of Demons.

After Lilith was cast out of the Garden of Eden for being too dominant in character, she reformed herself as a great demon, and began to produce Lilim (baby Liliths) at the rate of 1000 a day - her band of demons.
