    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

The forests are burning. Redwoods are bleeding
as you cut the flesh from their bodies.
A tree falls in vain as you strive for gain.

No second thought about the legacy you leave.
Ravish and rape the soil and the being.

The wealth you amass will bring you to your knees
as your actions will cause your death
as health is sucked from the living.

The downfall is on hand. There are a few who take a stand
stopping the chainsaw, blocking roads, linking arms.

You cant keep us down!
We're standing with the tall ones you want to use.
Climbing their crown to withdraw you from this abuse.

Some set their bodies on the line
some lose their life and freedom
to protect what was before us
for the inhabitants of pure wisdom:
the forest and its dwellers.

As they cut down the last old trees,
they cut down our future
of freedom and wildness.

Sequoia. The giants must live
for they hold age old truth of life in harmony.
The giants must live for they hold age old truth.
The trees must live for life in harmony.
