  3. 鬼 (Oni)Oni[1] (big and hideous ogre-like demon with sharp claws, wild hair, and two long horns growing from his head. Savage and wild in nature, Oni often carry giant iron clubs)
  4. 逢魔刻 (Oumagadoki) — Oumagadoki ("twilight", literally "a time to meet evil/demons" - the night time for disasters, similar to "the witching hour" but doesnt take place exactly at midnight)
  5. 文車に燃ゆ恋文 (Fuguruma ni Moyu Koibumi) — Loveletters Burning on a Postal Cart (this may refer to a yōkai Fuguruma-yōbi which is either a postal turned into a tsukumogami, or the grudge of a thrown-away love letter that has turned into a yōkai.)
  6. 氷の楔 (Koori no Kusabi) — Wedge of Ice - a song about Yuki-onna
  7. 鬼斬忍法帖 (Onikiri Ninpouchou) — Ninja Scroll* of Demonkilling (lyrics mention shapeshifting demon so 鬼 is used for abstract "demon" instead of oni here.)

Note: The "Ninpōchō" songs can be found in all of Onmyōza’s albums as well as in most of their singles. "Ninpōchō" is usually translated as either "Ninja Scroll", "Ninja Chronicle" or "Tale of Ninja Magic". These songs are tributes to Yamada Fūtarō’s influential low-fantasy "Ninpōchō" book series (which also inspired much manga/anime such as Ninja Scroll, Basilisk, Y+M, and Naruto). Band leader, Matatabi, stated Yamada Fūtarō as his favourite author in one of interviews.
