Resorte (Spanish for "spring device") is a Mexican nu metal band formed in 1995.Tavo, Juan Chávez and Carlos Sánchezformed the group in 1995. The band's birth occurred in sync with the emergence of a musical style called nu metal, whichgroups such as Rage Against the Machine and KoRn had already been promoting in the U.S. That same year, Resorte made anindependent music video for "America" that was the band's first achievement and would become the band's anthem. Thisvideo fell into the hands of MTV and began receiving cable play, which enabled the group to be known.After many concerts, in June 1997, Resorte released República de Ciegos thru Discos Manicomio. These were moments ofgestation for the musical movement that came in that spring. There had been a musical explosion in Mexico, and the band'scompatriots Molotov released their first album a month later.Resorte participated in festivals and multiple concerts for thousands of people. In September 1999, the group released theirsecond album XL. Its release represented a new push for the band and it was then when Resorte got its first taste of realfame, receiving radio and television play and reaching the Top 10 on MTV. By then they were opening concerts forinternationally known bands such as Limp Bizkit and Papa Roach.Resorte took a short break in 2001 to work a new material eventually to become Versión 3.0. Carlos "Charal" Sánchezm theband's drummer and co- founder, had already left the band to be with his family. The label Manicomio shut downoperations[why?] and Resorte was forced to find another recording label.Resorte eventually signed with Warner Bros. to release its third album. Rebota (f=k x) was released in 2002, with the additionof a new vocalist, "Pato" Elizalde, a member of the hip-hop group Control Machete. This work represented Resorte's peak inmusical quality, with excellent production and sound, having been recorded in two major studios in the U.S. However, "Pato"returned to his previous group Control Machete and sales were not as high as expected. Respect at the national level forResorte is evident, it headlines all the presentations they perform in.In May 2006, Resorte performed in the Vive Latino festival and in November in Corona Music Fest. In late 2007, Tavoparticipated in the song "Chinga los Racistas" of the Mexican hip-hop group Cartel de Santa and was a special guest on thethird album of Argentinian rapcore band Timmy O' Tool.Cristian Machado, vocalist of Ill Niño, said: "One of my biggest influences are the two Resorte's vocalists, who are like theMexican Rage Against the Machine".In 2009, Resorte were chosen as the opening act for Metallica shows in Mexico City at the Foro Sol and for AvengedSevenfold in the World Magnetic Tour '09. « hide
