Biography

Origins
Moderatto began playing in the mid nineties in Mexico City, as a parody of the glamorous style of many 1980's bands like Poison and Mötley Crüe. Originally started as a side project for the members' original bands, they eventually became very popular among members of the Mexican alternative scene. With their coming to the mainstream, they became hugely popular, gaining fans among the traditional pop music audiences.


Mainstream Debut
They launched their mainstream debut CD, "Resurrexión" in 2001. This album quickly gained popularity thanks to their first single "Márchate Ya" and the later "Isabel". In November 2004 they launched "El Detector de Metal", whose first single "Muriendo Lento," featuring female pop singer Belinda, was a huge hit that gave Moderatto their first real taste of mainstream success. Since the launch of the "Detector de Metal", the band has been giving huge concerts that have been completely sold out in Mexico's most important arenas, like the Auditorio Nacional and Teatro Metropolitan.


Influences
Moderatto emulates the big 80's bands like Mötley Crüe and Poison with their style and clothing. The band is formed by well-known musicians and actually started as an alternative band for many of them.


Music
Recently, the group has released a new album at the end 2006 titled "Grrrr". The first single off of Grrrr! is Sentimettal, which in three weeks climbed to #3 in the Mexican Top 40.

Following No Hay Otra Manera, Moderatto released their next single, "Si Mi Delito Es Rockear (Me Declaro Culpable)[If Rocking Is My Crime (Then I Plead Guilty)]".


Criticism
Although many of their Top 40 fan-base believe them to be metal, they have received many criticisms form true metal fans who feel than they are only pop rock. Added to the fact that a sizeable amount of their fan base is compromised of teenage girls who remain unaware that the bandmembers are actually alter-egos for respected musicians of serious Mexican rock bands, like Fobia and Santa Sabina, often resulting on accusations of selling-out due to the band's willingness to endorse products like Doritos and deodorant for teenage girls. The fact that their success has overshadowed their original bands' mainstream appeal, and resulted in a hiatus for Fobia, has generated criticism from rock audiences who feel the band has forgotten that they started out as a joke and has ultimately become that which they made fun of in their beginnings. Also, many fans feel the joke has gotten extremely old.
