METAL CHURCH vocalist Ronny Munroe's cover version of the RAINBOW classic "Man On A Silver Mountain" is available for streaming at this location. The song is expected to appear on the singer's first solo album, "The Fire Within", which is tentatively due this spring via Rat Pak Records.Munroe previously stated about the upcoming CD, "'The Fire Within' will undoubtedly be my best work to date and I look forward to sharing it with you all." Several demo tracks which are expected to appear on the album are available for streaming on Munroe's MySpace page. Ronny Munroe's solo band includes METAL CHURCH guitarist Rick Van Zandt on guitar. According to Tacoma Weekly, METAL CHURCH guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof had encouraged Munroe for some time to do a solo project. With METAL CHURCH's plans to tour in support of their new album on hold, this offered an opportunity for Munroe to do so. Munroe had 15 original songs to choose from for the upcoming CD, which was co-produced by the singer and Vanderhoof. Munroe said these songs show a wider vocal range, bigger choruses and different melodies compared to his work in METAL CHURCH. He writes the lyrics and comes up with melody lines, while Van Zandt is writing some of the music. Sonic Excess conducted an interview with Ronny Munroe in September 2008.
