Early 2012 Nidingr started writing the material for their new album, and after completing the writing process they entered the infamous Crystal Canyon Studios in Oslo, home of renowned Norwegian acts including cult experimentalists Ulver, to accomplish a unique seventies vintage style production for the album. The sound they have created is something very different from what is common in extreme music. It is a totally organic, warm, unedited and un-triggered production that emphasises the great musicianship caught on tape. “Greatest of Deceivers” continues the theme from "Sorrow Infinite and Darkness" based on Enochian texts. As on the previous album, ten Enochian Æthyrs are evoked through the course of the album. The Cover art for “Greatest of Deceivers” is designed by the renowned Metastazis (Morbid Angel, Paradise Lost, Ulver, Watain, Blut Aus Nord).
“Greatest of Deceivers” is produced by Nidingr guitarist Teloch and mixed by Anders Møller, known for his work with more rock oriented artists like Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O, Euroboys, 120 Days, Turbonegro etc. The album is mastered by Jaime Gomez Arellano at Orgone Studios.
