Cassio Audi was a teenager when he joined the group known as Viper, a Brazilian heavy metal band that was one of the first of its kind in that country. He was brought into the group as a drummer in the late 1980s, and before he left the group in the early 1990s, they had success with their first album, which was entitled Soldiers of Sunrise, and a demo record called The Killera Sword. The albums produced such hits as Knights of Destruction and Wings of the Evil.
The band was heavily influenced by British heavy metal groups from the 1970s and 1980s, like Iron Maiden. They even released some of their recordings in English, which was not done by most Brazilian bands at that time. Although Cassio Audi had gained much popularity in his home country as a drummer for Viper, he made the decision to leave the group after just a few years.
After leaving the group, he went on to receive a B.A. degree in Business Administration from Pontifical Catholic University, and an MBA degree from Sao Paulo University. He became a well-known investment manager, and has worked in that field for over two decades at such companies as Brookfield Brazil Real Estate Partners, where he was the Chief Financial Officer, and JP Morgan Chase, Dow Chemical and Rossi Residential.
As for his former band Viper, he is still friends with the remaining members of the group. Although a lot of his fans felt that because of his musical talent he could have had a long career in that industry, he chose a different course, one that he is just as skilled at and enjoys doing. But the Sao Paulo born businessman, along with his former band members, will most likely always be considered Brazil’s most innovative heavy metal group.
