親愛なるDEATHMASK is one of the few songs that are mistakenly attributed to Dir En Grey, despite being from another band.

In this case, the song was created by 黒夢 (Kuroyume), a Japanese rock band that existed even earlier than Dir En Grey. 黒夢 was, along with X Japan, one of the bands that had great influence on Kyo and at one concert during Dir En Grey's early days, they covered this song along with the band Vasalla. More specifically, this happened on September 15, 1997, on the last date of the Dir en grey presents MAZOHYST OF DECADENCE SHOW tour at Meguro Rockmaykan.[1] At the same concert, they also covered INSANITY by Vasalla and X by X Japan, again with Vasalla.[2] You can listen to the original song here.

After disbanding La:Sadie's on January 15, 1997, and before the formation of Dir En Grey on February 2, the band played a show at 長野Live House J on January 24.[3] At this show, they performed under the name DEATHMASK and played around four cover songs of Kuroyume.[4] Among tereko traders, a recording of a cover of this song exists. Allegedly, it was performed by 廃人黒薔薇族, but since the audience appears to call Toshiya's name, it was actually recorded at the aforementioned live.

Lyrics
Japanese Rōmaji Fan-Translation

GOD INTO “4”, 死顔
YOU DON'T KNOW DOUBT, 独裁
BY  病的
CUT RELATION, キチガイ

絞め上げ過ぎて疲れてしまった
目が合う度笑えてしまう
唾液まみれに息をしていた
首生づかみ殺してしまう

無罪の為に箱詰めになる
不安によって耳は剃がれた
発作が起きるカタワの君は
血が止まらない 殺せ

PAST,親愛なる DEATHMASK NOSTALGY
PAST,正夢とは DEATHMASK NOSTALGY

GOD INTO "four", Shinigao
YOU DON'T KNOW DOUBT, Dokusai
BY …… Byōteki
CUT RELATION, Kichigai

Shimeage sugite tsukarete shimatta
Me ga au tabi waraete shimau
Daeki mamire ni iki o shiteita
Kubi namazukami koroshite shimau

Muzai no tame ni hakozume ni naru
Fuan ni yotte mimi wa sogareta
Hossa ga okiru katawa no kimi wa
Chi ga tomaranai Korose

PAST, shin'ai naru DEATHMASK NOSTALGY……
PAST, masayume to wa DEATHMASK NOSTALGY……

GOD INTO "four", Face of death
YOU DON'T KNOW DOUBT, Dictatorship
BY …… Abnormality
CUT RELATION, Madness

It tightened too much so I got tired
I laugh when our eyes meet
Drenched in saliva I breathe
Killing the severed head

Boxed in for innocence
Ears shaved off from anxiety
The crippled you who suffers seizures
Incessant bleeding Kill

PAST, dear DEATHMASK NOSTALGY……
PAST, the fulfilled dream is DEATHMASK NOSTALGY……
