The symphonic black metal act RIUL DOAMNEI rises in the middle of 1999, approaching to the scene with the strong purpose to create a very personal concept of music and lyrics.
Including and mixing magistrally in its style many other influences like thrash and death riffing supported by majestic and triumphant atmospheres, gothic overtures and melodic slices, evolving a dark,oppressive and violent sound, the Band starts to find many approvals in its intense live activities since the early years.
Growing up constantely Riul Doamnei become quickly a very well known reality in the metal scene, finding a special place in extreme music panorama, touring Italy and Eastern Europe (Romania, Belarus and Russia) with bands such as VADER, ROTTING CHIRST, KRISIUN, INCANTATION, sharing the stage during all these years with entities such as MARDUK, GRAVE DIGGER, DEW SCENTED, BLOOD, LA STRANA OFFICINA, NECRODEATH, DARK QUARTERER, GORY BLISTER, DARK LUNACY, NODE, NOVEMBRE, ARTHEMIS, DEATH DIES, CORAM LETHE, CILICE, KREPUSKUL and headlining many festivals and underground events.

The band is also nominated "Best New Act of 2008" by the most popular italian metal website.
"Apocryphal" (Deadsun Records, 2007) is a concept album based on the Gnostic Gospels, a journey through the real and primitive meaning of christian religion, going straight to the roots of its essence and far away from the manipulation, cutting and correction made by the most millenary terroristic organization: the church. Here you will find the original version of the ancient and true cult, and there's no lies or fiction, it's just history.
After a successful celebration of the 10th band's anniversary giving a special show with their friends, legendary ROTTING CHRIST, RIUL DOAMNEI are working on the new album, another concept one: the last chapter that will close the trilogy begun on 2006...
