"The debut EP from hotshot guitarist Julia Kosterova is chock-full of finely tuned progressive jazz-metal. Wisely eschewing the solo shred concept in favour of rampant riffs and hooksome melodies, Kosterova establishes a great rapport with guest keysman Derek Sherinian. If she ever joins a proper band the results could be mind-boggling."
“I'm extremely picky about the music I listen to but I could put this song on repeat all day. Excellent everything.”
“Very technical, Tremendous energy, like volcanic eruption. Solid form and great playing, showcasing your writing and playing abilities in a variety of grooves and tempos.”
“There are some interesting sonic production touches on this song that elevate it above, say, a typical Satch album. Sure it’s just an EP coming out?”
“Pretty heavy stuff! Has Planet X written all over it!”
“Guitar has just got exciting again! Awesome Prog Rock, but new and fresh too. Just shared on Facebook… ”
“Metal MASTERPIECE! ***** If you’re in the mood for a fascinating Debut in the Progressive Rock/Metal department, I have just the person to introduce to each & every one of you Her name is Julia Kosterova; She’s a SUPERB new guitarist & composer originally from Russia, and she has given me a wonderful surprise with the release of her 1st E.P., “The Springs Of Time”. Considering the fact that all of the 4 songs were composed by her, it’s equally awesome to find that former Dream Theatre Keyboardist Derek Sherinian joins her on these tracks, which last only less than 7 minutes each. Excellent work Julia & please come to P.R. One day to give us a magical head banging show unlike any other on the face of our beloved planet earth”
“...she tears down the walls of a genre that is still widely considered to be a "boys club."...She works wonders on that fretboard, and does it with the grace and style of some of the greatest guitarists I have witnessed in a live setting .”
"I especially enjoyed the slow tune...nice tones and note choice. Keep it up!"
"What a burning track !!!! you're great !!!"
"Julia, you are a great guitar player. It's always nice to see a girl shred it up for a change. Great playing, I would like to see more, my friend."
"Princess of Shred!!!"
"Sounds good, you play with huge balls"
"This Rocks.....Right On."
"Great Work!!! God gave rock´n roll to you!"
