Music Remains a Passion for Financial Expert Cassio Audi

The latest financial moves made by investment specialist and economic guru Cassio Audi may make headlines across the nation as many everyday people look to his advice for their own investment portfolio but Cassio Audi had a career long before he became a finance specialist. It may seem to be a long way from the usually conservative world of the financial markets for Cassio Audi to move from his initial career as a drummer with one of the most successful heavy metal bands ever to appear in the Brazilian music industry.

In 1985, the heavy metal genre was only just starting to appear on the streets of Brazil following the end of the austerity and conservative regime of a dictatorship controlling almost every aspect of life in the South American nation. As often follows a strict regime disbanding, a creative boom followed and Cassio Audi rode this wave as the drummer for the still touring band, Viper. The birth of Viper came in the city of Sao Paulo when Cassio Audi joined the Passarell brothers in developing a heavy metal band that would become the now legendary Viper.

The work of Cassio Audi with Viper would shock the music critics of the world who did not believe a group of Brazilian teenagers could create and craft an album that would go down in the history of the heavy metal genre as one of the best ever created. In 1987, Cassio Audi and his fellow Viper band members signed a contract with the Rock Brigade label to record the album, “Soldiers of Sunrise” across the course of a single week. Although Cassio Audi’s drumming and musical skill were praised by critics and fans alike, he decided to return to his studies and embark on the career in finance which would make his name on a global scale.
