indie is short for independent, and simply says that an artist either

1. records and produces their own material, or
2. is signed to a small (though not always) independent label (one that isn't owned by a giant corporation, i.e. Virgin Records, Warner Bros., etc.)

someone please correct me if i'm mistaken.

You're correct good sir but you will find the majority of people are unaware of this fact.

I love metal, but prog metal often seems to abandon its roots too much in favour of technicality. When they get it right, it is awesome but it's horrible when they get it wrong.

And that is why I wouldn't be surprised. I thought you might see the bad form of prog metal as a bastardization of prog rock.
That's why I hate Dream Theater so much.

genre is defined by sound
not record label

What's so hard to understand that indie (refering to sound) is other?
