I found that odd too.
On the one hand they are looking for a new drummer, a new family member, and on the other, they want the drummer who sounds like Portnoy the most.
Mangini happens to come closest to the requirement so far ( imo ) , but when they talked about Lanf & Vigril doing some interpretation, which I foolishly thought was a good thing, they made it sound like a negative.
I thought all music was interpretive. Even classical, which is interpreted by a conductor. Obviously I dont understand this genre.
