The impact made by Cassio Audi on the heavy metal genre began in 1985 when the teenage drummer made his way to the first rehearsals of the newly formed bad, Viper. Coming together with a group of friends who shared a love of British heavy metal of the late 1970s and 1980s led to Audi’s drumming style being compared to that of his heroes in British bands such as Iron Maiden. Brazil was going through many changes in the early to mid-1980s as newly found democracy was allowing an amazing level of creativity to take place across the nation during this period.
