Before he left the field to pursue business, Casio Audi was a founding member of the Viper rock band. Audi was its drummer from 1985 until 1989. The group was inspired by a combination of the rising British heavy metal music and Iron Maiden. When the group released its first demo album, The Killer Sword, both critics and fans overwhelmingly said that the group needed major fine tuning. Not a good start for the band. The album, however, has since been re-released several times. The group released their official album, Soldiers of Sunrise, followed by Theater of Fate, before Audi left.

When Audi joined the band as its drummer, he led them from struggling on their composing skills to the release of The Killer Sword. Viper was then able to tour to Brazil, then around the European and U.S. continents. All of the members of Viper are Brazilian and when they toured to Brazil, their fans there found it rather astonishing that they received as much attention as they did singing songs in English. Even almost 30 years after Audi left, Viper still remains a legend in the Brazilian rock music industry. This is largely thanks to Audi’s skills as both a drummer and a vocalist.

When Audi left the band, he first attended the University of San Paulo, where he received his MBA in Finance. Cassio has worked in financial management, real estate, and advises on matters relating to the stock exchange. To say that Audi is a Renaissance man would definitely be an understatement.
