Description

Battle Kommand Records (BKR) is an American underground record label founded by Azentrius and Rebecca Clegg in 2004, based in St. Charles, Illinois. The company's stated intent is "to bring some of the world's most extreme music to the world's most extreme audiences." BKR has thus far concentrated on extreme metal genres such as black, doom and death metal, as well as more experimental forms of noise rock and ambient music. The label is the home of Judd's bands Nachtmystium and Twilight, and has released records by Krieg, Leviathan, N.I.L., Sapthuran, and Xasthur, among others. Battle Kommand Records merged with Candlelight Records in January 2009 as Candelight Records USA.

Blake Judd became widely known as a scammer when he offered to sell the label's dead stock to Nuclear War Now! Productions and Battle Kommand Records and collected money but did not deliver. More information can be found on the Azentrius artist page.

Trivia

Owner Blake Judd's mugshot was used on a "Blakecrush" t-shirt distributed by foes in 2013, with a banner that read "Battlekommand Silence" and his likeness crossed out and surrounded by the phrases "no reply / no package / no refund / no shame" - a parody of the classic Deathlike Silence which reads "no fun / no core / no mosh / no trends."
