How isn't this prog tho? It pushed the boundaries pretty far when it came out.
The mindset that prog = 10 mins of scale runs, jazz influenced key changey metal is pretty limiting. Prog in itself is a mindset/philosophy, not a genre. Just like "technical metal" isn't a genre but an umbrella term to refer to bands who make techy music.

By that logic, anything can be prog dude. I agree it's more of a mindset/philosophy, but for taggin purposes, we gotta consider prog as a genre.

truth. of course this is forward-thinking/"progressive" in nature, but it basically has nothing in common with what most people consider "prog metal" besides odd time signatures

Idk Keyblade I just feel like restricting prog to bands that sound like DT is anti-innovatory. I don't see how it being a genre and being defined by "pushing the sonic boundaries of metal" are somehow mutually exclusive. DT pushed boundaries, but only in one direction-towards Jazz and 70s prog rock. This just pushes the boundary in a different way.

idk...although prog/prog metal are super broad genres, they do have some characteristics that most bands share at least some of...jazz influence, shifting time signatures/tempos/keys, keyboard prominence, flashy instrumental performances...

again, isis may be "progressive" in nature, but i wouldnt call them a prog band because of how removed they are from what most people consider prog
