Battle Kommand Records (BKR) was an American underground record label founded by Blake Judd 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."[1] 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.[2]
