"What exactly is a progressive rock band? Here are a few ways to tell:
Is the band's name exceptionally odd or virtually unpronounceable? Y (Misspelled as "Iconoblast", "Iconcociast") Are any of the band's songs more than ten minutes long? Y Are the songs arranged in several movements or chapters? Y Does the music undergo a significant time-signature change at least once a minute? Y Does the album cover feature a sage, gnome, faerie, or nymph? N Are any of the band's albums part of a trilogy? N (yet) Does the keyboard player use a Mellotron? Y (well, samples)
If you answered yes or Yes to any of these questions, it's probably prog."
--GUITAR PLAYER Magazine, April 1995
By this definition, Iconoclast was 5/7 = 71.4% prog! Actually, I might venture to add two more qualifications:
Is almost every tune the band plays "part of a longer work in progress"? Y Does the band suffer frequent personnel changes due to artistic differences and personality conflicts? Y
In which case, we're up to 77.8%.
