In a new interview spotted by our friends at Gear Gods, Marco makes no qualms about admitting that before the audition not only had he never heard the band but he didn't even know most of their names. Here is the video where he admits as such:

I guess when you're Marco Minneman, you don't have to give any fucks! He did ultimately say that there was great chemistry and there were some serious discussions, but ultimately when the band asked him how long he's been a fan of the band and how many records he's bought of theirs, he was very honest in saying he never listened to it before. Minneman adds that was probably what cost him the gig, but he was super pro about it.
