The latest addition – Veislakt!
The roster of Rob Mules Records is beginning to look pretty awesome. We are proud to announce Veislakt to our tattooed and bearded heavy metal family!
Veislakt is an energic and hard-hitting ‘Jærcore’ band that plays a hybrid of punk and hard rock in their local ‘Jær’-dialect, with a predilection for double pedals. Veislakt started as a one-man project by vocalist and guitarist René Undem in 2013, and released the ‘Hommersand EP’ in March 2014. The EP received positive reviews and aired on the Norwegian radio channel P3, where it topped the Urørt music chart for independent and unsigned artists and remained in the top 3 over several weeks.
Music journalist Asbjørn Slettemark said at the time: “It makes me wish I was 15 again and about to do something illegal my parents didn’t know about.”
A hard working band, never staying idle, they released their first full-length album ‘Litium Og Aent Smågodt’ May 11, 2015. This also receive many positive reviews and more radio time on P3 and P13. In 2016 Veislakt released ‘Fumar Mata’. ‘Nav’, released June 3 was the single of the week in Stavanger Aftenblad, with a review score of 5/6. ‘Hjertebarn’, released August 26 received radio time on P3. ‘Fumar Mata’ (album) was released on CD, cassette, vinyl and digitally in November 2016.
