It was only going to be one night. Just one night. A night to drink beers, meet girls and have a good time with our friends. A night like any other night, except that night we were going to play with our new band. That was 20 years ago and that same night, thanks to the God of Rock, has been repeated 7300 more times.
Moderatto is, has been and always will be, the sublimation of the rock and roll fantasies of 5 best friends who share a taste for good music, rock, partying and being out of control. From not very diverse origins, all from the south of Mexico City, Xavi, Bryan Amadeus, Roy, Elohím and Mick have been able to unite their minds and hearts to take the word of rock to the length and breadth of the Mexican Republic, the United States and the rest of the American continent. It was all for one night, but that night has lasted 20 years.
And who are Moderatto?
At the front of everything, in the voice, the face of this 5-headed monster, is Bryan Amadeus Moderatto: singer, guitarist, master of ceremonies and spiritual leader in the rituals that the band performs live. On his left side, his younger brother Xavi Moderatto: bassist, relentless sex symbol and ideologue of the group yes: Moderatto's rock n roll is pure ideology. On the other side of Bryan, the duo of pounding guitars: Roy "the sexiest blond in Latin America" and the fast and strong fingers of Mick Marcy. Behind them all, on the most powerful drums of the continent, Elohím Corona, prodigy of the drums and master of the biggest and most spectacular drums in hard rock.
From Patagonia to New York; from Spain and France to Japan, Moderatto has conquered all the places where they have performed. There is no state in the Mexican Republic where a rock ritual with Moderatto has not taken place and more than 3 tours in the main capitals of Central and South America attest to this rock madness. Seven studio albums, 2 live albums and one collaboration with Alejandra Guzman, the queen of Rock and more than 6 compilations of hits, have been the gasoline of the engine that drives this great rockanrollera fantasy.
