Sol Veritas Lux is a CD release by the English folk/rock band Sol Invictus. It combines the first Sol Invictus release, the mini-LP Against the Modern World, with the second release, the live album In the Jaws of the Serpent, onto one CD.


The music of this release is dark, rough, and primitive, and counts among the earliest efforts of the post-industrial neofolk music scene. It is one of Sol Invictus releases where Tony Wakeford shares lead vocals with Ian Read, who went on to Fire + Ice.

It was originally released in 1990. In 2006, it was remastered for a re-release with extra tracks showing a current interpretation on the same material.
