SS Wiking Division Song (REMAKE) - "På Vikingtog"




Published on Apr 30, 2017

"SS marschiert in Feindesland" fue una canción de marcha del III Reich utilizada por su fuerza militar de élite, las Waffen SS.
La canción engloba elementos de heroísmo, lealtad, anticomunismo y patriotismo que se presentan sobre un ritmo de música típica alemana.
La canción se vio modificada en varias ocasiones, debido al transcurso de la guerra. Originalmente, su letra se refería a las orillas del río Volga en Rusia, y más tarde a las del río Oder en la frontera entre Alemania y Polonia, donde los intensos combates tuvieron lugar en 1945.

SS marschiert in Feindesland was a marching song of the Waffen SS, one of the military forces in Nazi Germany.
The lyrics imply the elite status which SS men saw themselves possessing. They are based on patriotic heroism and the mentality of "fighting till death", which was a popular philosophy in Germany during the Third Reich.
The lyrics changed as the war went on. Originally they referred to the shores of the river Volga in Russia, later to those of the river Oder on the German-Polish border, where heavy fighting took place in 1945. The lyrics openly declared that the SS would destroy the "Red plague".
As the Waffen SS gradually developed into a multi-ethnic and multi-national force, translated and modified versions were sung by SS men from other countries. Among these were a French version, used by SS Division Charlemagne, a Norwegian version called "På Vikingtog", and an Estonian version used by members of the 5th SS Panzer Division Wiking and later 20th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS called "Pataljon Narwa Laul" ("The Song of Battalion Narwa"). It was also the marching song for the 19th Waffen Grenadier Division of the SS (2nd Latvian).

SS marschiert in Feindesland, auch bekannt als Devil’s song oder Teufelslied (estnisch Kuradi laul, französisch Le chant du diable), ist ein faschistisches Lied. Einige Versionen wurden durch die Waffen-SS, Legion Condor, Hird und andere militärische Kräfte des Zweiten Weltkrieges genutzt.
