Heavy Metal Legend Cassio Audi Goes From Viper To Investment Specialist
The investment specialist Cassio Audi would seem to have taken the traditional route to becoming a success after studying at Brazil’s Pontifical Catholic University and completing his education with an MBA from Sao Paulo University; however, what few people know or understand about Cassio Audi is his early life as a teenage drummer touring Brazil with the legendary heavy metal band, Viper. Audi appears on a series of early recordings that built the initial following of the band and created the base of support that would lead to them continuing to tour long into 2017.
In 1985, the life of Cassio Audi began to take a different turn when the teenage drummer got together with a number of friends in Sao Paulo and created the band Viper; Yves and Pit Passarell are known as the founders of Viper, but the initial following and development of the band can be put down to the commitment of the members of Viper, the Passarell brothers, vocalist Andre Matos, guitarist Felipe Machad, and drummer Cassio Audi. The band made its name from touring and live shows allowing the members to show off their impressive musical abilities.
It may seem difficult to compare the successful financial specialist of the present day with the heavy metal drummer of the 1980s, but Cassio Audi showed his commitment to both the band and the career he hoped to established as a teenager. Although he had already begun to find success as a drummer with Viper in 1985 with the release of a series of demo recordings showing the influence of British heavy metal band, Iron Maiden, on Viper. Audi would help to form the sound of the debut studio album from Viper, “Soldiers of Sunrise” before leaving to begin the successful career he now continues with as a finance and investment specialist.
