Album: LilithReleased: 2017
Lilith is a sexually wanton Assyrian demon of the night who steals babies in the darkness. She was developed in the Babylonian Talmud and according to Jewish folklore was Adam's first wife, before Eve's creation. Butcher Babies frontwomen Heidi Shepherd stated about the "Lilith" title and cover artwork:
"Historically, Lilith has become demonized as a representation of promiscuity and disobedience. We, however, see her as a positive figure. A symbol of autonomy, sexual equality, and full control over your own destiny.
Lilith is the supreme representation of the left-hand path woman: independent, having discarded the patriarchal yoke, and not afraid to use all the tools available to her, including her sexuality, to gain the most out of existence. The eels in the cover art represent sleek symbolism of new beginnings and adventure."
