Former Death/Cynic drummer Sean Reinert has passed away

Posted by on January 25, 2020

We are saddened to hear the loss of another legendary drummer. Sean Reinert, the co-founder of Cynic, has passed away. He was only 48-years-old. Blabbermouth reports, he was found unresponsive at his California home last night (24th). No cause of death has been revealed at this time. Sean will be remembered as one of the most influential drummers. Reinert’s extensive career includes his time with Cynic until 2015. He joined Death just in time for their iconic 1991 album, Human, and shortly after returned to Cynic. His drumming career progressed from Cynic, Death, Æon Spoke, and more as he also composed music for TV and film.




We’ve lost two great drummers less than one month apart. We are deeply saddened by this and send our condolences to Reinert’s family and friends during this tragic time.
