Furthermore to SECURE (an outfit which has included people of Napalm Loss of life and Dimmu Borgir, with one stage Hypocrisy), Lindberg was following noticed fronting a music group known as the Crown. In interviews in past due 2001, Lindberg remarked that the fantastic Deceiver was still heading solid, despite his participation in other rings. And actually, the band’s following record, A Venom SMARTLY DESIGNED, surfaced in middle-2002 via Peaceville, implemented in nov 2003 by Terra Incognito.
