The Establishment of Viper Rock Band
Long before Cassio Audi chose to venture into the finance world, he had four years in the music industry playing drum sets for his band. The Viper Rock Band, as it was referred, was established in 1985 by a group of five young people whose common ground was their love for music.
The group members Felipe Machado, Andre Machado, Cassio Audi, Yves Passarell, and Pit Passarell. Each person took part in the area they excelled most, for instance, Cassio was in the drum sets since he was talented and good at playing drums. Together, they practiced constantly getting their motivation from Iron Maiden and the heavy metal music which was rampant in Britain. Their commitment was to grow in their career despite the shortcomings.
One of the challenges that they had to overcome was the fact that English was their second language and their music was in English. However, since they were determined to produce good music, nothing would move them and such obstacles only motivated to try harder.
Viper Rock Band First and Second Release
Before the first release in 1987 it was essential that the group perform a demo first so that through the adjustments made, the first launch would be remarkable. When 1987 when they launched their first release called The Soldier of Sunrise with three single tracks called The Killer, princes from Hell and Nightmare. Amazingly, this first album received a four-star rating from Allmusic.
This rating was an incredible start for the Viper Rock Band, motivating them to learn a few things and plan towards their second release.
In 1989, the team was able to produce their second album namely The Theatre of Fate after which Cassio left the music industry for the finance world. In fact, he then enrolled for his MBA from the University of Sao Paulo.
