Cássio Audi began a career in music, and he soon became famous throughout Brazil for being the drummer of a band named Viper, which he played for during the mid and late 80’s. The band currently still has some of its original formation, of which Audi was a member. Viper first became an official band in 1985 with its two demo songs: Projeto SP Metal and The Killera Sword. The original members of the band were André Matos as lead singer, Pit Passarell on the bass guitar, Felipe Machado and Yves Passarem on the electric guitars, and Cassio Audi on the drums.
Viper’s first big hit was the album: “Soldiers of Sunrise”. This album still is regarded as one of the best heavy metal records that were ever produced in Brazil.
In 1987, Viper added a new member: Junior Andrade on the keyboard. Andrade’s influence on the band made it more melodic and less metal. Many Viper fans feel that his touch made the band not classify as an authentic heavy metal band. Some fans feel that Cássio Audi might have left Viper because of this situation and started an entirely new and different corporate career. Viper currently plays with Pit Passarell on the bass guitar, vocals and backing vocals, Leandro Caçoilo on vocals, Felipe Machado on the electric guitar, Hugo Mariutti on the electric guitar, and Guilherme Martins on the drums who originally replaced Cássio Audi.
