Buffalo, NY is home to two individuals that really do no wrong in my opinion. Matt Goodrich (bass) and Thomas Leyh (drums) are two dudes who play in multiple bands that kick serious ass. Here are a few of them:
First up is Water Torture. I believe they originally starting as a two piece with Matt and Thomas and they have added another bass player for added loudness. Seriously loud as fuck. Thomas plays drums and does he fucking play them. His vocals are my favorite part about this band as he chooses to do shouts and screams rather then lower sounding growls. Matt is also a master of the bass and noise manipulation. Reminds me of a heavier Total Fucking Destruction especially with the frantic sounding vocals.
They have a few releases one being their self-titled and another which is titled Shellfire which came out in 2012 which is one of the best releases in 2012. They have a split with thedowngoing which they recently did a tour with, Sea of Shit, Dirt Eyes (Another Buffalo band), and Corrupt Bastards. They are also going to be on the Continuum Tunes from the Toilet Vol. 1 comp (which my band is also on).
Water Torture - Self titled (2011)
Water Torture - Shellfire! (2012)
Second up is Inerds.
Similar to Water Torture as it is drums and bass powerviolence/grindcore but they are accompanied by two vocalists Corey and Jessika who really show that chicks can seriously kick ass. Jessica was in the Buffalo band Avulsion.
Got to play with them once and they kicked ass. I currently do now know what is going on with this band. Hopefully they are still doing there thing. They got a few releases under their belts. Here are two of them.
Inerds - Choice Cuts & Stonewall
Last but not least is Bestower.
Also featuring Matt and Thomas this is more of a traditional hardcore band with four members. Fast hardcore with some slower parts. No blast beats to be found here as well just straight up punk beats which I love. I don't know if this band is still around anymore but I feel like they broke up.

Keep on the lookout for these bands especially Water Torture. All these downloads are on Grindcore Karaoke so go there to check out more sick grind. If I'm wrong about any of this information please correct me.
