«Ready for something a little different? Thot describe themselves as Vegetal Noise Music. I’d describe them as a more atmospheric Austerity Program with keyboards and more melodic singing. » (Metalsucks.net, USA)

«Exploration d`une rage contenue, teintée de noirceur, mais lumière se fera sur son soi. » (letransistor.com, France)

«Thot have crafted a work of exceptional intelligence and skill that has its sights set firmly on conquering the industrial world and, on albums of this quality you can’t help but feel they might succeed. There is beauty, honesty, ugliness and truth all wrapped up in this twisted, monumental work of art.» (sonicabuse.com, Uk)

«On est d’accord pour dire que « Moved Hills » est une pure bombe électro-rock ? » (lechoix.fr, France)

«Po těchto dvou úvodních peckách přichází první vrchol desky v podobě sedmiminutové skladby Spellbound Fields, která jako by se nevešla na The Fragile od NIN». (nmnl.cz, Czech Republic)

«And off the record, Trent Reznor (NIN) could (or maybe should?) listen to the Thot’s LP to remember that he also used to make music on a decent level.» (Alternation.eu, Poland)

«Stunning industrial from Belgium (!), fierce, raw, desperate, hard sound in traditions of Nine Inch Nails (it isn't like Rammstein or Oomph! However) » (oneage.ru, Russia)

«We horen eigenlijk vooral een Belgische band die nog nooit zo dicht bij Nine Inch Nails kwam: het buldert en fluistert, krabt en aait en smaakt zowel naar chilipeper als aardbei. Maar met een eigen
smoel die eigenlijk een samengestelde robotfoto is met de neus van Shining, de oren van Trent Reznor, de haren van Pleasure Forever, hun eigen bakkes en de lodderogen van Thom Yorke én dat is een compliment, dames en heren.» (RifRaf NL, Belgium)

«Thot - czy Grégoire Fray i jego ekipa pchną industrial na nowe tory? » (dnamuzyki.net, Poland)

“The river that everything drags is known as violent, but nobody calls violent the margins that arrest her.”

This quote from Bertolt Brecht is the best way to portray FLEUVE, latest album of belgian outfit THOT.
