Brazilian music industry has developed over the years to attract worldwide attention and love. Heavy metal rock music has become an integral part of the country’s music industry. However, little recognition is offered to one of the founding fathers of this genre in Latin America, Cassio Audi. It is understandable since he has spent his entire professional life in the corporate world making Brazil an investment haven in the world.
A band of five
Cassio Audi grew up with a passion and talent for music. When he reached his mid-teens, he joined hands with Yves and Pit Passarell, Machado and Matos to create a band of five boys, the Vipers. The five were the first to write and play heavy metal music in Brazil. The UK based genre was taking the world by storm, and the Vipers brought it to the South American soil.

All the band members were native Brazilians. Consequently, no one expected them to measure up to the standards of the Native English speakers. However, they disapproved many haters by their mastery of the queen’s language. Most of the songs, which were written by Cassio Audi, were in English. Listening to their record, Soldier of Sunrise today gives no hint of their Latino background. Besides, they flaunted the rock-stars’ punk style with surprising ease.
During the 80s when Cassio Audi and his boys’ band started the Vipers, technology had not messed the quality of talent. Only true talent attracted and kept the crowd coming back. The songs Cassio and his band played exhibit an exceptional talent that is hard to come by in today’s world of professional music. The vocals on the groups’ first album, Soldiers of Sunrises are so great that lovers of rock music have had it re-recorded more than three times. Read more at 12social.com.br about Cassio Audi.
