Before he started helping people make sound investments with their money, Cassio Audi was at the center of entertainment. He, alongside his five friends, was the founders of a Brazilian hard rock metal band, Viper.
Viper started as a small band consisting of the vocalist and lead singer Andre Matos, the bassist Pit Passarrel, guitarists Yves Passarrel and Filipe Machado, while Cassio Audi was the drummer.
The band was founded in 1985 and in the same year it recorded its first album The Killera Sword. The album received a great response and positive reviews from the fans. In 1987, Viper released their second album titled Soldiers of Sunrise. The album’s success was credited to the band’s adoption of melodic hard rock music.
Following the success of the Soldiers of Sunrise, Cassio Audi and other members of the band received praise from music magazines like Metal Hammer, Metal Forces, and Kerrang. The band was invited to open the Motörhead show in the country.
Viper’s success and huge fan following have led it to be referred to as the Brazilian Iron Maiden. Viper played in the main cities across the world and is still recognized as among the best rock bands in Brazil.
All good things have to come to an end. In 1989, Cassio Audi left the band to join the Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo business school where he took a career in financial and investment markets.
Though he no longer plays in the band professionally, he still finds time to play with some friends in social gatherings.
