I've always liked Wolfnacht's version of Pĺ Vikingtog, a WWII Norwegian SS song. It was also covered by Profane to lesser effect, but the melodies still sound great 'metalized'. Does anyone know of any other cover versions of old military songs?

Profane - http://youtu.be/TJL6_JtrzVU

original Musikkorps Division Herman Goring recording - http://youtu.be/e1rUjP3wBkA

on the recent Vader album there's this "black velvet and skulls of steel" song that has the theme of an SS-march.

Ah yeah there's a couple of bars of Pa Vikingtog towards the end. Seems it's the only tune metal bands know Very Happy

Any Finnish bands attempted Kauan on Kärsitty?

Also EVIL (Brazil) made a few versions of Wladimir's March.

Paganblut covered SS Marschiert, Die Braune Kompanie, Unser Rommel.

Also, I'm not sure about this release: http://www.metal-archives.com/albums/Naastrand/Chants_d%27Europe/119235
I don't know how many of those are actual military songs, this is a great album, sounds like Storm sometimes, but with much more of the chanted style vocals and has that soldier vibe.

there it is again! Laughing

So I stand corrected. 'SS marschiert in Feindesland' is the original song on which 'Pa Vikingtog' is based. And explains why everyone keeps using it.

Nileppez: thanks for the Paganblut and Naastrand suggestions.

Was Wladimir's March actually based on a militrary song? I always thought it was an original (albeit with more than a passing resemblence to 'When Johnny comes marching home again')

That song is also stayed in the French foreign legion, as "La légion marche". I guess the SS Marschiert in Feindesland is the original one, and it was adapted in the foreign SS divisions in their own language (Pa Vikingtog in Norway, Le Chant du Diable in France, for example). But perhaps the German version is already an adaptation of an older song.

It is more or less the same melody like "Ghost Riders in the Sky", which is based on "When Johnny Comes Marching Home", which in turn is based on an old Irish song called "Johnny I hardly knew ye".

Aye, seems to be the case.

Although there's no mention of who wrote it or where it originated. Anyone know?
