The Great Deceiver is a band featuring At the Gates front man Tomas Lindberg. Their music is a mixture of hardcore punk and heavy metal. The band was originally called Hide, and was formed in the week after At The Gates split up. A couple of years later they changed the name to The Great Deceiver.
In a recent[when?] interview with Decibel magazine Tomas Lindberg says: "The band is probably permanent on ice."
