“Ronny Munroe brought passion and fire to his performance on Poughkeepsie Live. Although his name may conjure up big 80’s hair and angry lyrics, to the contrary, Munroe now flying solo still has hair but adds to his arsenal lyrics with depth and tunes that will leave you wanting more. There seems to be a shift in his music without totally abandoning his previous musical life with Metal Church. His classical training in the art of metal music continued to show throughout his entire performance. His performance was like catching electricity in a bottle”.
