Editors’ Notes Although Kansas have never considered themselves headbangers, their heaviest moments led to the birth of progressive metal. The deafening power chords and brooding howls exploding from “Child of Innocence” and “Sparks of the Tempest” show this, while “Mysteries and Mayhem” helped establish the template for the fast, hyper-technical gallop that many prog metalheads later embraced.
