Posted in Uncategorized on Aug 10, 2017

Up until 1989, the world of heavy-metal lovers got to know a rising star in the form of Cassio Audi and his band members in the Brazilian heavy metal band known as Viper. Cassio Audi was Viper’s first drummer who not only made a name in Brazil’s heavy metal music rock history, but also assisted in the spread of heavy metal through out Latin America in a time when rock music was a rare thing to hear for the young who were in want of it. After the international release of their first demo album The Killera Sword in 1985 the whole world got a taste of Cassio Audi’s flourishing talent on the drum sets. As one of the founding member of Viper he took his drumming very seriously becoming quite proficient in the instrument and a well respected member of Viper. Not only was he a drummer, but he helped composed music along with promoting the band earning them even more recognition and fame. For his diligence in all his endeavors with the band along with gaining inspiration from British heavy metal bands including the bands most influential source, Iron Maiden, came their 1987 debut album Soldiers of Sunrise which proved Cassio Audi’s mastery as well as sheer genius of the drum sets. Critics were quick to point out flaws in the bands abilities, but given their young age and the fact that English was their second language they were wholly recognized with the possibility that they would surely rise to the top in their musical careers. Viper would continue to release album after album with some help from Cassio Audi, but he felt like his time with the band was coming to an end and chose to pursue another interest which was as successful as his promising musical career in 1989.
