Description: (wikipedia) Onmyoza ??? are a Japanese heavy metal band who released their first commercial album in 1999. They play quite orthodox heavy metal music comparable to Iron Maiden or Judas Priest, mixed with Japanese folk/pop musical elements. Their name Onmyoza refers to the gathering of yin and yang, and this is also represented by the female and male vocals.
Their songs mainly deal with oni, yokai, the Japanese dragon etc, but some songs have more concrete theme and inspiration.
For example, Onmyo-za have ever composed 10 Ninpocho songs. "Ninpocho" means "tales of ninja magic", and those songs are tribute to Japanese author Futaro Yamada and his Ninpocho series. Their hit song "Koga Ninpocho" was written for anime "Basilisk" of which the original story is Futaro Yamada's "Koga Ninpocho".
There are also some other songs inspired by Osamu Tezuka and Natsuhiko Kyogoku.
The trilogy "Kumikyoku Yoshitsune" is based on the legend of Japanese ancient tragic hero Minamoto no Yoshitsune.

 Stage Names
Each of their stage names has double meaning with a sense of humor.
Kuroneko(??) literally means a black cat, just symbolizing her personality.
Matatabi(??) is a flashing fire, but it can also be read as a silvervine (loved by cats).
Maneki(??) practically?means "summoning oni", but its reading reminds most Japanese people of maneki neko.
Karukan(??) is not clear in its literal meaning, though Karu(?) independently means "attacking" or "hunting" and Kan(?) is "adultery" or so. (The words ? and ?, with the latter now meaning "wickedness" or "evil", are the same in old times but have been deviated.) But its reading is familiar to Japanese people as a brand name of cat food.
Tora(??) has little literal meaning, but its reading is the same as tiger in Japanese. This suggests also that he is a fan of Hanshin Tigers.
So, all their stage names are related with cats.
