Viking/Black Metal from Sweden. Contains the band's three albums - In the Sign of the Ravens (1997), King of the Distant Forest (1998) and Gathered Around the Oak Table (1999).
Reissued discography of Mithotyn. Three discs jewel case.
Some say Bathory. Some say Enslaved. While those two bands surely helped to establish and lay the concrete for the genre of Viking Metal, it wasn't until 1997 and Mithotyn's debut, "In the Sign of the Ravens", that Viking Metal was truly born.
This album's message is very clear. These guys are not trying to be complex. They are not trying to be progressive. They are not trying to impress you with any ridiculous gimmicks or techniques. No, Mithotyn are simply a band of vikings who are here to play viking metal, and they do a damn good job doing it. This album REEKS of viking/nordic influence.
