    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.

    Includes unlimited streaming of Earthwrecker via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Life is interconnected.
We are related to all.

Still no respect for the living.
The awareness is lost to involve the whole.

The death of a living being does mean nothing!
No meaning, no necessity.
Your body is not in need.
You have no mouth to feed.
Your survival does not depend
on this life to end.

There is no dignity.
Where is your integrity
to destroy a life so pure
regardless of our brotherhood.

Minds will be changed!
Consciousness will return!
Some day even you will see,
that we need each other.

Life is interconnected.
We are related to all.
Lost all respect for the beings around.
The awareness is lost to involve the whole.

We have seen it all. We can watch them every day.

We have seen the trees falling down.
We have seen the innocent suffering.
We have seen developers gloating
and machines destroying everything.

But the masses still stay silent, watched by their oppressors.
Being silenced by artificial gods, false idols and enslaving drugs.
Being fed with brazen lies, bitter pills and voiceless cries.

We will awake to this world a new.
An old and known light
will shine for all life.
