Cassio Audi may not be a household name in the 21st century, but for followers of heavy metal across the globe the former drummer is known for the success he achieved with the earliest incarnation of the Brazilian heavy metal band, Viper. Across the planet, Viper have built a strong following for the powerful heavy metal music the band has been creating since 1985 and for the many different influences the band have used over the course of a career that began in 1985; the original lineup of the band has not come together for many years as drummer Cassio Audi is now one of the most respected financial investment experts in South America.
Heavy metal was in its infancy in Brazil when a group of teenagers came together to form the cult band Viper in 1985; the original lineup of Viper included Andre Motas, Felipe Machad, Yves Passarell, Pit Passarell, and drummer Cassio Audi. Like all bands the need to develop their sound was important to Viper and saw the influence of British heavy metal groups of the late 1970s and early 1980s become the main influence for the burgeoning Viper, in fact many music experts point to the iconic British band Iron Maiden as the main influence on the early years of Viper.
Cassio Audi aided Viper in creating its early heavy metal success that saw the drummer appear on early demo recordings and the band’s first studio album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”. Despite some issues with the English language the album is seen as a high point for Viper in their early career. Cassio Audi would leave the band before their next studio album and complete an education that would seen him become an popular financial expert across the nation of Brazil who has been looking to allow as many regular people to invest in the financial markets as possible.
