Why is this American Band such underlooked through an American site? As a french pop teen fan ( like so many as me) Iron Butterfly has been such a high time, can't understand , so what ? HEAVY , IAGOE( same live) are just rubish? Disapprove

Many people say that Prog as a musical form began long before King Crimson. I don't agree, but one of the interesting strands that was going on was Iron Butterfly. I thought they were Canadian?

Iron Butterfly is from San Diego, California. "Butterly Bleu" from Metamorphis is an excellent example of psych/prog.

The only problem with Iron Butterfly, for those of us who enjoyed them and actually considered them to be a decent band back in the day, is that listening to them in 2011 borders on an excruciating-type experience.
Can you tell me where we're headin'?
Lincoln County Road or Armageddon.

To be fair, I do still enjoy In the Time of Our Lives and Soul Experience now and again.

Somewhat the only song I like from them is In A Gadda Da Vida and it's for the main riff. Sometimes I find it a bit long though.

Yes great riff. Bears many similarities with that of  Cream's Sunshine of Your Love.
