Poverty of Ideals is a 3 Piece Instrumental Progressive Metal band hailing from the North of Johannesburg, South Africa. Formed in 2009, Poverty of Ideals started from a desire to play something more, something technically challenging yet still keeping to a sound that can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of genre.

They take a completely unique look on the “Progressive metal” genre, aiming to fuse technically syncopated grooves with expansive melodic sections, while shying away from the generic stereotypes often associated with the genre. Not only influenced by Metal, Poverty of Ideals draws influence from a wide spectrum of genres including Jazz, Blues, Rock and Fusion.
