Lorna Shore vocalist Will Ramos got to join his favorite band onstage last night in Montclair, New Jersey's Wellmont Theater. The deathcore pig-squealer made a surprise guest appearance with Swedish melodeath vets In Flames, dueting with that group's frontman, Anders Fridén, on the song "The Mirror's Truth."

Ramos has been very open about his love for In Flames, and particularly their 2008 album, A Sense of Purpose, which features "The Mirror's Truth."
"The album that changed my life is A Sense of Purpose by In Flames," Lorna Shore's frontman told The Music in 2022. "That was the first one that came to mind thinking about this, and I like to be on the fly with this sort of thing, I don't wanna overthink it. I don't know a lot of albums by their names, but that album I know by name, I know every single song. I could pull the whole freaking album apart, I could hum just the guitar parts and then hum the vocal melodies and then create a humming In Flames song, basically, because I know everything in it so well."
He added: "That was the first album that I ever listened to by In Flames, and that was one of the first bands that I ever listened to when I started listening to metal. A Sense of Purpose is that album for me. I've now listened to their discography, and everyone would usually say: 'Clayman, that's the one, that was the beginning of the best.' And I mean — yes, it is definitely a good album, but for me growing up… Well, I can appreciate that album now, put it that way. I love Clayman now, but A Sense of Purpose was always the one that stuck out to me the most."
In Flames' tour with Meshuggah continues tomorrow night in Wallingford, Conneticutt.
