Speed metal is not dead. I Farm careen out with some punk riffs and full on guitar mayhem with the unintelligible lyrics and double bass drums. They're on with the time changes, and I'm thinking that if you added a bit more guitar, lost the vocals, you'd get something very close to The Fucking Champs. There's something impure about these metal riffs, which is good. There's a younger influence coming in, so while the technique is old, the style is almost new.
