The soundtrack features many traditional instrumental score music from the film, as well as glam-rock infused vocal tracks from composer Otomo Yoshihide. Yoshihide collaborated with Inu-Oh voice actors Avu-chan (lead vocalist of the band QUEEN BEE and voice actor for the titular Inu-Oh) and Mirai Moriyama (who voices Tomona/Tomoari) to capture the anachronistic quality of the film’s music for the official soundtrack. The track list consists of several classical Japanese biwa songs to modern rock operettas. 

Avu-chan has also contributed an original song alongside the soundtrack titled “INU-HIME” from their band QUEEN BEE. The track is inspired by Avu-chan’s work on the film and features an accompanying music video featuring Kenjirou Tsuda, who voices Inu-Oh’s father in the film.

  1. 1. Birth – Otomo Yoshihide
