    Wind in his hair is a melodic neocrust band with influences ranging from atmospheric black metal to hardcore punk. The bandname refers to a first nation chief called "Wind in his hair" from the movie "Dances with wolves". The name was chosen to show solidarity with indigenous peoples and their struggles without exploiting native identity in any form.

    The lyrics are all about nature, primitivism, anarchism and respect for Mother Earth. All members are vegans (most of them also straight edge) and support the ideas of rewilding and the concepts of sustainability.

    The debut called "Earthwrecker" features five songs. An atmospheric folk intro starts the album. The following tracks combine rhythmic parts of neocrust bands like Fall of Efrafa with atmospheric and melodic elements of US black metal bands like Wolves in the Throne Room or Alda. All in all it is a very atmospheric album with calm and quiet parts, but also harsh and aggressive passages.

    The overall concept deals with finding ones place on a planet which is destroyed by modern humanity. With the last wild places being replaced with concrete wastelands the album tries to remind us, that there is no life possible on earth without respecting nature and protecting the wild.

These roots and branches won't save me anymore.
And if they can't, who else could?
These trees I adore are still dying.
There is no way out! No place to hide!

How can I exist, how can I find my way
when their wooden hearts stop beating?
When all their twigs are dry.
When their bark is burned.
When all their leaves, joined the wind on his journey.

How can we live in a world like this?
Where hate rules and ignorance is bliss.
Where others carry our lives in their hands.

How will I ever be free in this once living world?
