Looking Back on the Early Music Career of Cassio Audi

The 1980s is often remembered for the success seen by many heavy metal bands in breaking out of the underground music scene and into the mainstream. The nation of Brazil had not long been freed from the yoke of oppression provided by a political and military dictatorship when heavy metal burst onto the scene in the early 1980s. In 1985, drummer Cassio Audi joined a number of heavy metal bands on a journey Audi remains known for as one of the most iconic drummers ever to have risen to prominence in this musical genre.

Cassio Audi became a member of Viper in 1985 before the band had recorded any music and played a major role in the development of a band which would become one of the most famous in Brazilian heavy metal. It is safe to say without Cassio Audi, Viper would not have built their initial following as a heavy metal band in as fast a period of time as they did in 1985 with a limited release of homemade recordings under the name, “The Killera Sword” and more information click here.

The pioneering sounds and songs created for “The Killera Sword” led to the signing of a deal with the Rock Brigade label to create the first studio album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”. The album was a commercial and critical hit for Viper and Cassio Audi, in particular, was singled out for praise as his drumming crossed different styles on the album. Cassio Audi was guaranteed a spot in the Brazilian music hall of fame for his work with Viper but decided n 1989 to leave behind his fledgling music career to develop a career in finance which has matched the heights achieved by Viper across the ensuing decades.
