If there’s a thing that’s often been hidden by modern music historiography, it’s that a good bunch of the so-called “Viking/Black/Pagan Metal” artists should give In Flames the merit of their artistic success. Mithontyn, in fact, were one of those bands who had developed most of their songwriting while analyzing The Jester Race, and as a result their albums, while hardly excellent, sounded varied and sprightly, as opposed to the indigestible stodgy bricks that were Thyrfing and Trollfest’s respective discographies: if Mithotyn’s three albums are bricks, they’re pleasurable bricks. There’s a tendency to flat Obituary D-tuned chord recycling and Power Metal riding sections, but the songs are slightly well constructed and reveal a Progressive Rock edge most of their contemporaries and colleagues couldn’t manage to incorporate in their songs. On a wider level, King of the Distant Forest is preferable to the band’s debut album.The band’s third and final album before their disbandement, Gathered Around the Oaken Table, was a 4.5 stars album. It repeated the band’s musical blend of Power Metal, minor-based tranquil Folk influences and the In Flames derivativeness passed as pseudo-Viking posturing. It’s consistently varied and solid exactly as the previous album (thanks also to the thoughtful use of G minor melodies), but it’s hard to shake off their tentative imagery when the album is playing on. It’s a good way to say goodbye to fans, but not exactly a masterpiece, although if it was the closest the band ever came to make.Highlights: “King of the Distant Forest”, “On Misty Pathways”, “Masters of Wilderness”.
