Julia Kosterova's debut EP Springs Of Time (2013) - more than a guitar instrumental album, featuring Derek Sherinian (ex-Dream Theater, Planet X) as a special guest on keyboards, Marco Minnemann (The Aristocrats, Steven Wilson) and Brian Tichy (ex-Whitesnake, S.U.N.) on drums and Chris Buck (3 Crows), Michael Devin (Whitesnake, S.U.N.) and Rufus Philpot (Planet X, S. Henderson) on bass.
Springs Of Time is a blend of instrumental melodic hard rock and Progressive - with great energy, power riffs, appealing catchy melodies, odd times and prog sophistication.
Julia Kosterova: "This is NOT a typical solo shred album. Instead, as a composer and producer I did my best to create a concept, elaborate compositions, contrasting parts and space for instruments interaction."
