The career of the financial expert Cassio Audi may have taken in some of the largest investment groups in the world, such as J.P. Morgan Chase and many large Brazilian financial institutions, yet many heavy metal fans know the name of the investment specialist for very different reasons. Prior to returning to Sao Paulo University to complete his education, Cassio Audi was the teenage drummer of the influential heavy metal band Viper; one of the best known Brazilian bands in the world who rose to initial prominence as part of the new wave of 1980s heavy metal.
It was in Viper that Cassio Audi first found fame as a drummer in 1985 when he joined the heavy metal band alongside a group of local teenagers who shared an interest in British heavy metal bands. The birth of Viper came as Cassio Audi and his fellow band mates came to value the influence of the British band “Iron Maiden” who they used as their major influence in the writing and performance of their first studio album, “Soldiers of Sunrise”.
Cassio Audi has a long history of finding success in both of his chosen careers in both finance and as a heavy metal performer; Audi has been a leading investment figure for a number of years and also brought with him a large amount of skill as a musician in the heavy metal genre. Viper remain a popular band, but the first incarnation of this influential heavy metal group has continued to be classed as the classic lineup taking in a number of important songs and genre defining motifs over the course of its existence; Cassio Audi and his fellow members of Viper who performed on the “Soldiers of Sunrise” album were praised for having such high levels of musicianship at such a tender age.
