With over 10 years of history in the Japanese rock music scene, Onmyo-za’s releases have consistently placed in Oricon’s Top 20. Their 2001 Osaka live show announcing their major-label debut sold out instantly at pre-sale, and the band’s strong Japanese fan base has supported them with sold out shows across Japan, including completely sold-out Japanese tours in 2007 and 2008.

Known to metal fans worldwide for their powerful guitar & bass work, Onmyo-za’s hit song, “Koga Ninpocho,” was written for the Studio Gonzo TV anime series “Basilisk” (released in the USA by FUNimation).
