Soup biography
Norwegian band SOUP was formed as the creative vehicle of composer and keyboard player Erlend Viken in early 2005. Coinciding with him studies that took him to the western part of Norway his numerous song ideas, previously given an outlet in various band projects, now resulted in the creation of a CD. Come On Pioneers was the name, and it was self released in 2006. In 2008 Soup was picked up by indie label How Is Annie Records, who reissued this initial CD. The same label eagerly released the second production courtesy of Soup too, the double album Children of E.L.B. from 2010. Since then Soup has expanded to become a true to life band project, consisting of Erlend Viken (vocals, keyboards, samples), Sverre Leraand (drums), Rune Leraand (bass) and Orjan Lunde (guitars). Not long after they were signed to German label VierSieben Records, who reissued Children of E.L.B. in the summer of 2011.

The latest news from this Norwegian acts is that they are working on a new album, the third to be issued under the Soup moniker and their first as a bonafide band.

The Beauty Of Our Youth
Soup Crossover Prog

Review by Second Life Syndrome
Collaborator Post/Math Rock and Crossover Teams

4 stars The strength of material released in 2013 is continuing to astound me. From established bands to artists that are suddenly coming out of the woodwork, this year will be remembered as an incredible year. Case in point: the new album from Norway's Soup. Attracted as I was to the cover art and general tone of the album, I was excited after I heard "The Beauty of our Youth".

Soup have a certain amount of familiarity about them, but they still have their own sound. They remind me of a mix between Anathema and The Pineapple Thief, but that doesn't quite cover it, either. They feature climactic melodic progression similar to Anathema, but also a grounded rustic quality like that of The Pineapple Thief. Add to that a bit of Muse, a slight indie influence, and a talented violinist, and you will start to get a picture of how this album sounds. Melodious, soaring, upbeat, orchestral, and magical at times, Soup's third album leaves quite an impression both musically and lyrically.

I was immediately taken with the nostalgic ambiance throughout "The Beauty of our Youth". If it weren't already apparent by the title, I think nostalgia was the very point of this work. Youth really is like a dream. I can remember the "good old days", and somehow I forget all the bad times. This album is a tribute to those memories.

Soup has quite a way of incorporating these glorious feelings into their music through ascending melodies and even group singing. This is especially apparent on "Transient Days". Other favorite tracks include "Our Common Ground" with its excellent violin lines, and the wistful "Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend". Every song, however, is strong and provokes emotion, at least for those of us that want to reach out and remember better days. I'm really thankful for this glorious new release from Soup, and I really wish them the best for future endeavors into progressive music.

Review by Chris S
Special Collaborator Honorary Collaborator

4 stars My review disappeared into the ether on this album. Sadly I cannot fathom why it was there a few weeks back and has now vanished. It is an extraordinary piece of work. The tribute to Richard Wright is one of the highlights with bombastic instrumentals, Floydian vocals and dreamy harmonies. That is just a taste to Children of E.L.B. This Norwegian band is a class act and I would encourage as many people as possible to seek them out. This is a double album so you are guaranteed about 80 minutes of awesome music. A solid four stars and it makes finding their debut release all the more important.
