Drummer Rick Cimato of up-and-coming metal band Thinning the Herd died in a car crash on the weekend before Christmas. The crash occurred in Connecticut while Cimato was making his way from Maine to New York.

After frontman Gavin Spielman informed fans of Cimato’s death via the band’s Facebook page, adding that he didn’t think he could continue the band after hearing the tragic news, Spielman posted a more in-depth tribute to his friend. “Thank god for this guy, what a gift as a friend, brother and band mate. For anyone who jams with others, anyone who lets another into that higher conscious world – you might understand the depth of how one can integrate and nurture the spirit.”
