From the recording Spirits of the Ancestors
The Furies, also called the Erinyes, were three goddesses of vengeance who lived in Hades; the Underworld - realm of the dead.
As goddesses of vengeance, the Furies were sent out to bring justice to people who committed crimes. According to mythology, they focused on punishing children who disrespected or murdered their parents, people who lied, killers, and people who sinned against the gods. However, any lawbreaking was open for punishment by the Furies.
