Cassio Audi of Brazil

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

He may be an extremely successful businessman these days but in his youth, he was a wild rock-and-roller! That’s right, in case you did not know, Cassio Audi played drums for Brazilian heavy metal legends Viper back in their early days. In fact, recordings of his music are widely available for those who are interested.

Cassio Audi

Audi was the drummer during the formation of the band in Sao Paulo. His playing is featured on two of the band’s demo cassettes, entitled “The Killera Sword” and “Projeto SP Metal”. His playing helped the band sound so good that they were signed to Rock Brigade Records. This label released their official debut album “Soldiers of Sunrise”. This record achieved a good amount of press coverage from both the worldwide heavy metal press and fans alike. It has also been recognized through the eyes of time as one of the formative albums in the early history of Brazilian heavy metal.


Cassio Audi left the band in 1989 but his influence on the Brazilian metal scene and on the global metal scene, in general, cannot be understated. It may be that becoming a heavy metal drummer at such a young age and experiencing a modicum of success instilled the drive that has led to Cassio Audi to become successful in other avenues of life. It is a testimony that Cassio Audi has made such a mark on such widely divergent paths in life. For this, Brazil should be grateful.
