The band Viper may have been performing together with a number of different lineups since their formation in 1985 with only two short hiatus’ over a three decade long career, but for one member the move from heavy metal icon to financial expert has proven a fertile career change. Cassio Audi is now one of the leading financial investment experts in Brazil with a growing number of followers waiting for his next advice and tips on how everyday people can enter the markets, but Audi was once one of the leading heavy metal drummers on the planet driving the rhythm section of the first incarnation of Viper.
Formed in 1985, Viper became one of the leading lights of the first stages of the Brazilian heavy metal scene that was heavily influenced by the British heavy metal band Iron Maiden. Cassio Audi came together with a group of his childhood friends to form the earliest version of Viper long before the band were signed to a record label and were still attempting to find their sound as an individual band.
Cassio Audi would appear on a number of official and unofficial recording with Viper that included their earliest demo recordings that were created to showcase the sound of the band in its earliest days. Eventually, after building a large live following the band were signed to a record label and recorded their first album, “Soldiers of Sunrise” in a little under one week; Audi and his fellow teenagers created their own sound and became a success with an original album that was created using Iron Maiden as the major influence of the band in terms of both the lyrics and musical sound of the group.
