A new force emerging from Ireland are rap duo "Veritas" who've recently dropped two seriously impressive tracks along with two compelling videos. 

"Thou shalt not fall" has a haunting, beautiful gothic sounding instrumental that provides a classical back drop for some of the illest rhymes I've heard in a long while, opening to"Traumatise your mind like an intense interrogation" and "The man that loses all is ready to fight for fucking anything; I've lost more than you would ever be even capable of handling". Both emcees come correct "With a reinforced perspective your sytem will never restrict how I think, my leak subconcious thought  insync with instrumentals but keep the darkest thoughts incripted scripted with invisible ink" 

The violent history of Ireland is obviously still raw in the land that Veritas inhabit and  the overspill into wasted landscapes wrought by drugs, unemployment and violence is bought to focus by these their rhymes. Track "Dark Ages" brings disturbing sets of narratives; a mother struggling with pain killer addiction gets the news that her son has apparently committed suicide, but in dubious circumstances, meanwhile another family member spirals violently out of control, his misery compounded as he "doesnt understand why his Da left him" News snippets within the tracks highlighting the levels of violence that has co-incided with ruthless drug dealers and led to Veritas venting in this heavy track. These boys go from the heart but with a technical swagger that puts them on an  playing field with the top emcees outside of Ireland. 

Veritas, individual emcees Epik n Exile hailing from Dublin and Kildare also, impressively, produce their own material but have a few producer features on upcoming album, so watch out for that; their "Plans are to keep projectin the truth as we see it in the rawest form we can"
