The documentary, simply titled Sean Reinert Tribute, looks at Reinert's influence via interview with drum legends like Gene Hoglan (Testament, ex-Strapping Young Lad, ex-Death, etc.), Tomas Haake (Meshuggah), Dirk Verbeuren (Megadeth, ex-Soilwork, etc.) and way more.

"This is my tribute to my biggest drum influence — in early 2020 I filmed segments with Gene Hoglan, Tomas Haake, Dirk Verbeuren, Flo Mounier and Steve DiGiorgio and when covid started I had to do Gus Rios and Lee Harrison remotely," said drumtalk in the video description. "Felipe Belalcazar gave me access to the footage he shot with Sean for his Death documentary. I'm so thankful for everything I learned from Sean and I'm glad I knew him.

"Sean Reinert is one of the most important drummers in metal music. His playing on Death's Human record and his work in Cynic, Portal and all his other projects was influencing so many drummers that his place in the drum commmunity cannot be overstated. He died unexpectedly on the 24th January of 2020 and it's a incredible loss to both musicians and all the people who knew him.

"Thanks to everyone involved in this for your support and effort.
