Sean Reinert is the drummer of the group Cynic and Gordian Knot. He is known for his technical and creative drumming.

In 1991, Reinert and Paul Masvidal (also of Cynic) joined the band Death to record the Human album. After touring with Death, he returned to Cynic. Because of legal ties with the record company, Sean could not play on the next Death album (leading to the famous collaboration of Chuck Shuldiner and new drummer Gene Hoglan which would last for through the next two Death albums).

Cynic released their first album in 1993, by the name of Focus . Their second album, Traced in Air, has been completed and is set for release on October 27, 2008. Reinert was the drummer for the band Gordian Knot on its self-titled album and half of its second album, Emergent. Gordian Knot was created by Cynic bass player Sean Malone.

Malone and Reinert also played together in the band Aghora, an experimental progressive/technical band.

    "Sean Reinert was the drummer of the now disbanded group Cynic" Hmmmm someone really needs to update this data, neither Cynic disbanded, nor did they change their drummer !!

    One of my favorite drummers along with Mark Zonder and Terry Bozzio. I'd die to see him play with Sean Malone and Glenn Snelwar again
