    Here's what it says on their website:

    Propaganda Kommandant

    What truly sets them apart is their aesthetic. At first blush some may see gas masks and combat boots and write it off as a gimmick — or worse yet, assume that they are a National Socialist band. Those people would be wrong. Beyond the gas masks, beyond the button-down black shirts and the vaguely fascist aesthetic is a larger picture: this is not a band that is paying homage to any regime of the past or a specific time period, no – Kommandant is art imitating life.
    (there's more of this shite on the propaganda page, don't really know what to make of it)

    Cool music. They're probably not as racist as they may seem. Hell, I was in a satanic black metal band, and I'm practically Buddhist.
    Do you know what time it is? It's time to FARK SHEET ARRRRRP!!

    I will say, the idea of a lead vocalist singing from an ominous-looking podium/pulpit is a pretty cool idea.

    The imagery is borderline, though.
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion

    Kommandant have staunchly refused to thus far publish any lyrics, preferring the listener take away what they put into it.

    That "propaganda" statement indicates their totalitarian imagery is intended as a form of protest over the emerging authoritarianism in the USA:

    In this era of warrantless wiretapping, no-fly lists, secret prisons, and so-called “free speech zones” within the United States, a new attitude is emerging. Whether this new outlook is the result of our new culture of extreme government or merely in spite of it is hard to say. Is it possible to make a bold statement about it while maintaining a wholly apolitical stance in this, the decade of division?
    Maybe it's my libertarianism speaking, but I can't really argue with any of that. However, this isn't that "bold" a statement, really. Side 4 of Pink Floyd's The Wall (and the movie even more) had a very similar concept over 30 years ago.
