A Band is Born
The younger years of Audi Casio were those filled with excitement and fun as they saw him launch a music career as a drummer for Viper – a famous rock band. With four other mates – Felipe and Andre Machado, Yves and Pit Passarel – Audi officially started the band in 1985. As each person played a particular role within the band, Audi’s part was a special one nonetheless – the band’s drummer, a part he played with an exceptional performance. In fact, Audi became a drumming sensation. Viper drew much inspiration from a British heavy metal music band which was dubbed The Iron Maiden.
His incredible brilliance on the drums was shortly experienced by the band’s first demo album release, one called The Killer Sword. The demo album consisted of tracks like Princes from Hell, Nightmare, and Killera; these were later adopted into the first full-length debut album, which was finally released in 1987 and titled “Soldiers of Sunrise”. Audi was seen on the front cover showing his drum set prowess.
The album was well received with many critics stating that Viper was destined to achieve wonderful things in the music industry in days to come. The album later received its four-star rating through none other than Allmusic. As the album grew more popular, the band’s members re-made and re-released it to include some of their earlier songs; as a result, these songs also became a great success.
