Polish grindcore drummer Cyjan passed away today.
Born on September 12, 1970, Cyan, real name of Sławomir Cywoniuk saw fame in the second extreme band from Poland (Vader -formed in 1983 – being the first according to the site Kurier Poranny, Behemoth was formed in 1991, one year later of Dead Infection).
Still according to the site, he was a great fan of the progressive rock band Electric Light Orchestra, but also, of course, a greater fan of Carcass, whom he saw live in 2008 in Czechia (Czech Republic) and according to the famous polish actor Paweł Małaszyński ( from the Oscar-Winning film The Pianist by Roman Polanski – who was his personal friend) he even shed a tear while watching the band. Also, according to Mr. Małaszyński, Cyjan (who was known by his BRUTALITY) was a man of “British” humor, who loved movies and even collect soundtracks from them.
Still, according to the Polish media outfit, he had pressure ulcers, and the treatment was very expensive, something about 30,000 zł (roughly $7562 or £5,874).
Although Cyjan didn’t make a living from the band (he didn’t even have a car), Dead Infection (and his other band Evil Machine) were when he got his kicks.
Sławomir Cijan Cywoniuk was 49.
