Poverty's No Crime  


Poverty's No Crime rank alongside Vanden Plas as standouts in the German progressive rock/metal scene, with a style owing to familiar sources (Dream Theater for one, though they aren't quite as flashy with the musicianship) as well as their own unique take on prog metal. Though it might be argued that their music is just a shade generic for the genre, all the elements are in place, from a solid production to well-composed songs and powerful yet not overdone vocals. They formed in 1991 and have to date released five albums (most recently, The Chemical Chaos in 2003) and as of this writing are working on their next release.
