After 3 demos, the enlarging and the stabilization of the line-up, here comes the debut for the Moscow band so much recommended to me by our friends in common from Twilight Is Mine and Abstract Spirit, who were responsible for the recording, too. Although there're musical and singing similarities with Abstract Spirit, Who Dies In Siberian Slush add some growls to their vocals, ending up between Doom and Death. Moreover, the keyboards have a major role in Abstract Spirit due to the funeral aspect they mean to express, while the lyrics give me mixed feelings: the ones from "Leave Me" try and show the protagonist's indecision with partial success, whereas the others are great, showing the necessary dose of melancholy, desperation, solitude, oppression and bitterness, and there's even an instrumental track inspired by Gumyliov, a dissident who never returned from Siberia after Joseph 'insert prophanity of choice' Stalin's epurations.
