Origin: Sweden  
Genres: Viking Metal, Black Metal
Last update/review: October 28, 2001


Mithotyn was a Swedish black metal band with pronounced Viking/folklore influences. Most of the vocals are of the typical black metal shrieking variety, which tends to get kind of samey, though there are some almost Manowar-ish backing choirs here and there that are nice. The pace of the songs varies from mid-paced to speedy, with enough variance to not be too monotonous. Mithotyn were neither totally generic nor really all that original, resulting in a mid-level career that was officially terminated sometime in 1999. Guitarist Stefan Weinerhall has since formed Falconer.
