As a teenager, Brazilian Cassio Audi was inspired by heavy metal music from U.K. bands like Def Leopard and Iron Maiden. Along with 4 teenage friends, he co-founded the Viper Rock Music Band one of Brazil’s iconic Heavy metal bands. Audi’s talented expertise on the drums with his loud, forceful beats played an important part of their unique sound.
In 1985, Viper recorded a demo by the name of The Killer Sword, which included the tracks Killera, Nightmare and Signs of the Night. Audi was inspirational in flooding Brazilian airways with tracks from the disc and the band’s popularity exploded. Their fame progressed to staging shows in Europe and American continents with Audi playing all drum sets.
As tours continued, Audi composed songs and was innovative in the release of their first album, Soldiers of Sunrise in 1987, which included several songs from their demo disc. Audi was instrumental in marketing the album and wrote one of the songs featured on it.
The album received mixed reviews from critics and most agreed that the overall “raw” sound of the band needed improvement, but all acclaimed Audi’s prowess on the drums. Despite these reviews, the album and the band rocketed to stardom.
Audi continued to compose and Viper’s next album, Theatre of Fate, released in 1989, was an immediate success. Tracks included Illusions and A Cry from the Edge with most lyrics written by band member, Pit Passarell. This album and Soldiers of Sunrise were re-released in 1997.
Throughout these successful years with the band, Cassio Audi had divided aspirations. He has a remarkable musical talent and is still a legend in Brazilian rock music, but his decision to leave the band soon after the second album only makes him more iconic in the music industry.

Talented artists abound in many different musical genres. One of the most competitive entertainment fields for entertainers is opera. To captivate an audience opera singers must be capable of delivering powerfully precise vocal performances upon demand. Male baritone singers frequently deliver superb performances yet remain in the background as relatively unknown personalities.

Among his many roles have been performances as “Sweeney Todd”, “Jack Torrance”, “Enrico” and Count Anckarström. The characters that Mulligan brings to life are both varied and complex.
