'At first glance, Long Lasting Happiness seems to depart from the norms of Grunt into something more destined for the perversity of Nicole12. What greets us immediately through the entire artwork package is a collage of fake plastic faces and narrow anorexic female bodies; glares and sensual poses that embody the dogmatic media insistence of what is beautiful or sexy in our era. Cleavage, flat stomachs, golden tans, open mouths and cocked hips — all begging for a sexualized reaction. The idea behind the album is one of control again, however — of the false enchantment that lurks within television and magazines, luring today’s fickle, hollow spirits towards an infatuation with the unobtainable.
Aspa’s attempts at creating an atmosphere here that is reminiscent of the theme are interesting, leading Long Lasting Happiness to be one of the more experimental efforts that he has unleashing in recent memory. Though it is another re-release that contains bonus tracks (in this case, one unreleased song and four from the Nihilistic Paraphilia compilation series), it is unlike Europe after Storm in that every track sounds like it belongs on the album both in terms of structure and mixing. While the very vocal fury is still there, Long Lasting Happiness — seemingly in a fit of irony — takes on an air of dark ambience in its best moments, mimicking the hollow existence and shallow emotion of those individuals whom have allowed themselves to fall prey to a beauty-relative obsession. Even in tracks like “Streets of Decadence” where there is a huge blast of screeching noise to withstand, there is a darkness lurking beyond anger within it — a blackness to the fire where high-pitched drones, intentionally designed to be a typical raw element, end up sounding like looped and layered screams.
At this point, three albums in, each recording that Grunt puts out feels like it takes us into another circle of some sort of modernized hell to view the pathetic souls that linger — those too distracted with chasing false dreams to fully experience life, those too gutless and weak to stand up for their own freedoms or live out of harmony with the wishes of the State, those whom ignorantly live in a dream of security.
Well, and then there is “Male Clit” and “Paid Victims of Modern World Fetishes” which, in fantastically brutal (and hilarious) detail, take us into a view that is critical of modern over-sexualized, internet-obsessed men whom find their next perversion away from their wives and children in the anonymity of the “men seeking men” section of Craigslist. Admittedly, it’s hard to tell if this is a celebration of modern decadence from a sadistic point of view, or a vehement howl of disgust.'
