It’s being reported that drummer Sean Reinert of Cynic/ex-Death, etc has passed away at the age of 48. Reports suggest that he was found unresponsive in his California home on January 24th. Reinheart had an influential career and is most known for his with Cynic. Health problems derailed Reinhert‘s abilities to perform in 2014 and a very public split with Cynic would follow the following year. It was later resolved with a legal settlement in 2017.
Following the split, Reinert would go on to perform for Perfect Beings, who’s latest album “Vier” was released in January of 2018. Reinhert and fellow Cynic bandmate Paul Masvidal had publicly come out of the closet in 2014, and shed light on struggles and intolerance they had faced in the 90s death metal scene and more due to their sexual orientation.
Though they’ve had a strained relationship as of late, both personally, and professionally, Masvidal reached to the news through a social media post, sharing a blank black image.
