Voilà ce que plusieurs sites ont dit de cet enregistrement:
Gripe are a three-piece powerviolence band from Athens, Georgia. Their sound is a good mixture of grindcore and powerviolence. I really love the high-pitched vocal style, which is one of the things I love about most powerviolence bands. "The Future Doesn't Need You" is Gripe's first e.p. and it is insanely good. It's so good that I can see these guys being on a label like To Live A Lie, Give Praise, or even Grindcore Karaoke. I know that it is clichéd to say this but this e.p. just sounds violent. I feel like this would be a perfect soundtrack for a killing spree , and the song titles reflect Gripe's violent sound with titles like "Go For Throat" and "History of Violence". "The Future Doesn't Need You" comes in at around 10 minutes, but all the songs are memorable and because of that this e.p. feels a lot longer. My favorite songs of of "The Future Doesn't Need You" are "Prison Tycoon", "Eatr Bot", and "Go For The Throat". The cover art is also really cool.

Gripe send me their 8 song's demo that can feed us eargasm, to those people digging new band that playing brutal as fuck hardcore/grindcore, Gripe is worth to put into your hard drive.srsly brutal shit... to know more about gripe check their facebook and bandcamp for show and updates.( thank you for sending me your band, i really appreciate it)
So Gripe surprise me by being a powerviolence band that I not only tolerate, but enjoy. I don’t know how old they are, and I don’t really care, but they do have the young-dude-midrange yell that makes me grit my teeth. The classic grindcore “little bear/papa bear” vocal dynamic is present, though, so sometimes the vocalist sounds like his balls have dropped. I guess I do care about age, in that I genuinely hope this band does not last long. Few things would be sadder than old dudes in a band called Gripe. (...)
I fend off powerviolence/grind/everything-core bands daily. My inbox is like a batting cage with a pitching machine at double speed. I swear, if I hear another blastbeat, I’ll… But then come Gripe, young-dude-midrange yells and all. And I let them play. They know what they’re doing. They know how not to bore me. Their riffs twist achingly, and their snare sound is fantastic. (That sounds trivial, but I really get off on great snare sounds.) With smart complaints lyrics about societal/personal injustices, and comical photos of cops on Segways (somehow imagery of cops on Segways makes perfect sense for a band called Gripe), this package is a tasty cookie of bile.
I am not a bilious person, so who knows how long Gripe will last in my consciousness. (Hopefully not too long – few things would be sadder than an old dude listening to a band called Gripe.) But for a sharpshooting blast of grind that hits sideways but drills deep, Gripe fills that “need”.
