Here’s some praise from critics of their Glastonbury 2023 performance:

There aren’t many bands causing excitement in the metal world right now that are anything quite like The HUWithin seconds of the band lurching into ‘The Gereg,’ heads across the field are banging, smiles are spreading across faces and it becomes immediately clear that Glasto is set to be the latest territory to fall under the Hu’s spell.” –METAL HAMMER (6/26/23)

This band are powerful…one of the most creative and exciting sets for heavy music lovers in 2023.”
– KERRANG! (6/26/23)

The Hu are an Ulaanbaatar-based eight-piece – some of them in ceremonial dress, some in leather dusters – who play a mixture of modern and traditional instruments, guitars rubbing up against tovshuurp pop horsehead fiddles. Their songs follow suit, resembling Black Album-era Metallica if James Hetfield had more of a penchant for Tuvan throat singing.” – The Guardian (6/25/23)
