This Japanese formation, Onmyouza, is usually deep in Heavy Metal, but at times they also write some slow ballad. As European and American metalists often take inspiration from ancient European traditions, Onmyouza use Japanese myths to write lyrics, and they often recur to Japanese musicology for melodies and harmonies.

This song, called "Hotaru", is pure Zen Buddhism. As it's Zen, it needs (or stands) no words to be explained.
