Terri Rytkonen, wife of Bindrune Recordings (Panopticon, Falls of Rauros, Celestiial, etc) label head Marty Rytkonen, suffered a stroke yesterday which led to a car accident. Now paralyzed on her left side, Terri is in surgery to help alleviate the swelling in her brain. Those of us who have worked with or met Marty know him to be a class act and an impassioned, caring person. Ben "Ben Smasher" Smith recently started a GoFundMe campaign, featuring an emotional plea from Panopticon's Austin Lunn and Obsequiae's Tanner Anderson, to financially assist the Rytkonen family in their time of need.

Please consider donating here.

Not only is Marty an important figure in American black metal, but he is a caring family man and a selfless, kind person. We all hope for the best for Terri, Marty, and their son Parker.
