Gathered Around the Oaken Table

Gathered Around the Oaken Table is the third and final studio album by the Swedish Viking metal band Mithotyn. First issued in 1999 on Invasion Records and Soundholic in Japan, this featured a cover image of a group sitting around an oaken table. The Japanese version contains one bonus track ("Bland vargars yl" - a re-recorded version from the band's 1996 promo demo). The re-releases through Karmageddon Media (Europe) and Hammerheart America featured different artwork.

This would be the band's last release before members Stefan Weinerhall and Karsten Larsson dissolved the band and formed Falconer'.
