1. Gripe are a 3 piece hardcore band heavily influenced by grindcore, powerviolence, and only the fastest 80's hardcore acts such as deep wound, siege, void, etc. They formed in late 2010 in Athens Ga, in stark contrast to the happy go lucky pop friendly scene at the time. Gripe play a very heavy, dark, and discordant take on hardcore. Their lyrics tend to focus on negativity and dystopian future concepts. They are known for their live show intensity.
