Lilith was the first MacDonald book I ever read, and has remained my favorite. Mr. Vane's eerie experiences in The Evil Wood, the mystery of Mara, and the affluent yet drab and oppressive existence of the people of Bulika, all of these ideas have always intrigued me. A few songs were written but they never found a home on any other release. i was always unwilling to part with them because of my love for the book so I finally decided to write some more songs also focused on and inspired by the book itself. Over the next few years I would revisit the book and find something new, and that eventually became this tribute album.
Purchase the album and listen to numerous excerpts here.
Three excerpts from the album are presented below:
Mara and the House of Bitterness
The Evil Wood
