Cassio Audi – The Legendary Drummer of Heavy Rock Musician

Cassio Audi is a former musician who played the drums set in the viper music band from Brazil. Cassio formed the group together with four of his friends namely Pit Paraselle, Yves Paraselle, Machado Andre, and Felipe Machado. Cassio Audi’s role was drumming where he brought a new sub-genre in the heavy rock mode of drumming. The rock band started their music in the mid-1980s when they were still teenagers. Through Audi’s prowess as a great drummer, the group became popular among the lovers of rock music.

The Rise of the Viper Band

The band started by recording a demo album in 1985 that was known as the ‘Killera sword’. The album’s tracks included Nightmare and Killera Princess from Hell. Further, the demo album was a hit that got to be played on the radio. Equally important, Cassio drumming boosted the band’s music as it brought an unprecedented massive sound that had never been experienced before. Also, the band’s inspiration drew from the British heavy rock music that was played by Iron Maiden. Cassio Audi was also a songwriter and helped the band to compose some of the songs played in the album.

What’s more, in 1987 the band released their first album known as the Soldiers of Sunrise. The album contained tracks that included Knights of Destruction, Soldiers of Sunrise, and songs that were in their demo album as well. Again, the record was a hit and made Cassio Audi and his band members earn more publicity in the rock music industry. Consequently, because of their great music, the album received a high ranking in the music industry in Brazil. The album further sold many records and earned national recognition a factor that led them to even hold events outside Brazil. Cassio Audi, however, quit his music career in 1989 in pursuit of other professions.

The Golden Touch of Desiree Perez

In 2008, celebrated Hip Hop star and business mogul Jay Z signed a ten year deal with Live Nation worth 150 million dollars. As a decade ends and the deal comes to close, Jay Z is looking to leverage on the success of this deal to attract other industry bigwigs to seek a stake in his company, Roc Nation. As the 360 Deal, as it was dubbed, comes to an end, the buy-sell clause will be triggered, meaning that either of the two parties can either sell their stakes or buy the other out of the company.

With reports that Live Nation is not keen on continuing the recording deal with Roc Nation, Jay Z has been looking to other industry players to invest in his company. Together with Roc Nation top executive Desiree Perez, Jay Z is said to have held a meeting with Universal’s chairman and CEO Sir Lucian Grainge about a possible deal. Speculations on whether the meeting could lead to a new deal for Jay and his company has been fueled especially by the fact that Universal Music Group already has a distribution deal with Roc Nation.

Desiree Perez has been an instrumental player in the success of not only Jay Z and the Roc Nation brand, but also for many other Roc Nation artists. She is the silent force behind the growth and success of such industry greats as Rihanna and Beyonce among many others. Ms. Perez is the chief operating officer for Roc Nation, a position which she has held since 2009.

Desiree Perez’s influence in the Roc Nation brand has been instrumental in leading the label’s stars to monumental success. She was the brain and force behind the highly successful Rihanna Samsung deal as well as the Beyonce Formation Stadium. With her brains, skills, and experience, Roc Nation is, without a doubt, in safe hands.
