Cassio Audi’s musical journey came to light in 1985 when he was invited over by a friend Felipe Machado to attend one meeting that he hosted in house. In the meeting he met three other gentlemen: Andre Machado, Pit Passarel and Yves Passarel who together constituted the soon to be Viper Rock Band. Having been identified by his friend as a passionate friend to the drum, Cassio then assumed this role at the band which he passionately took used to deliver. Nevertheless, he brought glory to his fellow band members who he dazzled with his eloquence and grit as he composed most of their songs that soon came out superbly done.
All about the Fame
With his multi-talented persona, he marketed the band well, hence winning major tours not only in Brazil but also across the globe. Such shows brought them much fame and criticism in equal measure. Most of the critics opined that they were too old fashioned to stay afloat in the music industry, but not so long, they released their much anticipated album Soldiers of Sunrise that featured tracks such as Princess from Hell and Killeria. The album literally sent their critics into panic mode since it attested that they indeed had got a wide acceptance in the musical space.
The success of this album became an opener to many greater things such as more global tours, more money and immense fame. With all these, Cassio went ahead to fuse both heavy metal and classical music and the results came out as just incredible! The new change in style then attracted even more people to their side as they embarked on a major album which they named the Theatre of Fate. After, the release of the album, in 1989, did Cassio exit the group citing the need to pursue his financial career.
