Local Band 101: Volume 31 – Cold Factor
Meet Cold Factor and check out their new video!
Cold Factor originally formed about 5 years ago as an Yngwie Malmsteen tribute band. Here's the rest of their story:
Right after the tribute, the band started to learn covers from bands like Dream Theater, Rush, Van Halen, Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, Queensryche, DIO, Journey, and Iron Maiden to play the local El Paso and Juarez bars. Cold Factor are Roberto De La Cruz on guitar, Charlie Duarte vocalist, Axel Briseño drummer, Raul Urias bassist, and Luis Soto keyboards. In 2015 Cold Factor was invited to open up for Argentinian Band Rata Blanca in front of 5,000 people. In 2016 Cold Factor got together with the Juarez Symphony and played the music of Metallica at Paso Del Norte Theater with a sold out crowd. In 2017 Cold Factor opened up once again for Rata Blanca in Juarez playing Power Metal Cover Songs. Cold Factor is a regular opening Band for a variety of Tribute Bands that come to play at local Casinos and Entertainment Centers . During this year, we started concentrating in writing original music, and hope to finish a 4 song demo CD by next year.
