Dorn is a German black metal band. It was founded as a solo project in 1998 by Roberto Liebig, the ex-keyboardist of pagan metal band Riger. Dorn's 2000 debut album Falschheit was recorded in the studios of CCP Records in Linz, with Liebig playing all of the instruments himself.
The album received good reviews, so Liebig was signed by CCP Records and left his role in Riger. Falschheit was followed by Brennende Kälte in 2001 and Schatten der Vergangenheit in 2002. For the 2004 album Suriel, Liebig was joined by Michael Werber, Sebastian Ziem, Lars, and Ira. With this lineup, Dorn toured in Germany, but in 2005 Lars and Ira left the band.
