However, Cassio Audi’s first passion was music. He had an active career in the pop/rock category in the 1980s. He was one of the founding members of a band called Viper which they formed in Sao Paulo. This band came together in 1985 and Cassio Audi was this group’s drummer up through 1989 when he decided to make his exit. Along with Cassio Audi the Viper band members were Yves Passarell, Felipe Machado, Andre Machado, and Pit Passarell.
Cassio Audi says that the two biggest influences for their music were the American band Iron Maiden along with the British heavy metal music scene. He was said to be a great drummer and could likely have built a professional career as one should he have chosen to do so. Viper launched a demo album named “The Killera Sword” which they recorded in 1985. Among the songs he played drums on were “The Princess From Hell”, “Signs of the Night”, and “Nightmare”.
Viper released first album in 1987. The critical and fan reviews said they individually sounded great and just needed some refinements to really break out. What they really enjoyed were the vocals on their songs as well as the lyrics. This first album was called “Soldiers of Sunrise”.
