Band comments on the album:
Radikal Rats is a collection of 7 interconnected stories with a common theme. The main character is Hector, a male white rat who in 1961 was launched into space on the Veronique rocket. According to the version presented in “Radikal Rats,” he wasn’t put to sleep for experiments six months after the flight; instead, he returned to Earth in order to (get his due). People have repeatedly used various seemingly harmless creatures for their malicious purposes. They conducted experiments to exterminate entire colonies and even species. But this time, they themselves will be exterminated… The age of men is over, the time of the Rodent has come!
