As "underground" promotion means diversified, the Hip-hop public quickly transformed into a solid fan-base and, inevitably, Veritasaga made its mark as an important name in Romanian Hip-hop movement. Full stop. Now, from the beginning. In 2003, the first Veritasaga album was released, "Punct si de la capat" ("Full stop. Now, from the beginning.").
Despite the fact that it was an independent material, and sustained only by a "listen and pass it on"-type promotion, the album generated an impressive buzz and caught the attention of a large number of people. Having distinguished itself through an unprecedented sound - meditative, sad and melancholic, unusual for Hip-hop - Veritasaga quickly claimed an impressive number of fans, setting off a real "stream" in the Romanian underground. With different eyes. In 2004, Praetor leaves the country, and Dj Sonia becomes an official member of the group. Veritasaga starts spending hundreds of hours in the studio, working on the new album, while inbetween attending numerous shows in Bucharest, Oradea, Timisoara, Constanta, Iasi, Piatra Neamt, Hunedoara, Craiova, Targoviste, Cluj.
In 2007, four years after "Punct si de la capat", and after more than 20 months spent in the studio, Veritasaga is getting ready for the "official" debut, with the new album "Cu alti ochi" ("With different eyes"). Carefully developed to the smallest detail, with a production and post-production at international standards, the 19-track material promises to offer the listener a new perspective on this musical genre. When inviting other artists on the album, Veritasaga has not limited itself only to Hip-hop MC's and DJ's, but has also invited on few tracks some of the most talented producers, vocalists and instrument players from electronica, soul, jazz and alternative. "Cu alti ochi" features guest appereances from: Suie Paparude, Catalin (Coma), Bitza, Funktastics, Butch and DJ Undoo (Dagga), Kombat (KST), DJ FaiboX (U.S.M.), Aforic, Nimeni Altu', Simina. One of the surprises and controversies of the album is the presence of Praetor who, contrary to the rumours, has not left the group when he left Romania. He recorded in a local studio in Australia for "Cu alti ochi" proving, once again, that distance is nothing in the way of passion! "I gave life to the pages / trying to solve the mistery of the ways / of the One above, that are also walked by the ones below / and believe me that there is nothing more beautiful than letting your soul speak. This is the only thing that i still believe in after four years of foolish work. I said enough.
I leave you the soil and a flower It's only your fault if it dies." Veritasaga can't be heard, it's felt. !" Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
