Fallen Martyr Announces New EP Title, "The Six Roots Of True Will"

Fallen Martyr has announced the title of their upcoming EP as "The Six Roots Of True Will." Here's an explanation from Ryan himself:

"The first idea is "the six roots" which comes from buddhism. The belief is that everyone has six roots within them 3 of good and 3 of evil. The good being generosity, loving kindness and wisdom, the evil being hate, greed and delusion. And you have to accept all these parts of yourself and others before you can reach enlightenment. In the beginning of my story i believe that these parts have to battle for dominance inside me but come to realize that by accepting every part of me i can achieve my greatest potential.

"The Second idea is 'True will' which comes from the writing of Aleister Crowley, specifically the book of the law. According to him everyone has a true will which isnt necessarily something conscious, but ones calling or purpose in life. And it is realized not through any kind of divine aid but by ones own efforts and self discovery. Which is really what my whole story is about and what most closely describes the ideology that im trying to express. I also have subtly included some other words phrases or ideas from thelema and the book of the law into the lyrics (i.e. the great work, the new aeon, etc.) so it works on that level as well"
