Onmyo-za's new drummer!


This is Makoto Dobashi (support drummer of Breakerz and Acid Black Cherry), he is Onmyo-za's new (support? official?) drummer.  He has been confirmed as being the drummer for the recording of their upcoming new album Kishi Bojin, and he will also be the live (support?) drummer for the band for their upcoming tour.

On a personal note - I have and will always be a massive fan of Tora/Kawatsuka Atsushi (and am looking forward to following his new band project) so I have mixed feelings about the new Tora-less album, but understand that Onmyo-za have to move on.  I'm just hoping that Dobashi-san will bring something special to the music and fit in well with Onmyo-za's unique style......and of course get a funky cool cat name too.

Thank you for the info. I also hope he will be fit well to this amazing band. I am waiting for so much the new album. I curious how will Dobashi san change their sound (if he will, or maybe Matatabi san rule too strongly the project. lol)
According to Matatabi's and Kuroneko's blog ( and Ishikawa Tomotaka has also contributed to the drumming on Kishi Bojin. However, I doubt he'll perform live with them.
Oh my I can't believe someone replied to this, yes I know about the running roster of the band. For recording they used Dobashi but for reasons including the fact that he plays with other bands as a support drummer most notably BREAKERZ that he isn't on tour with Onmyo-za. At the point I wrote that entry this was all the info available, and since this community is dead I wasn't bothered to update it since nobody seemed to care. I would of mentioned Kawatsuka Atsushi's post Onmyo-za project and upcoming CD release and info about Kishibojin etc but nobody seemed to care so I didnt update the community like I used to. Sorry!
