Metal Nite returns to Trumbullplex with Ossuary, Theories, and Michigan's WitchFist and Dakhma

Staff Pick


  • Brandon Lake
  • Dakhma.

In a sea of retro garage rock revivalists and back-to-the-basics singer-songwriters, Michigan’s metal scene thrives, though quietly — which makes Detroit’s longstanding anarchist collective the Trumbullplex the perfect stage to display the angst of Metal Nite Vol. II. Topping the bill is Ossuary — old-school death metal out of Wisconsin — and Seattle’s death grind foursome Theories, as well as occult metal Midwesterners Tubal Cain. Support comes from two Michigan acts — primitive heavy metal duo WitchFist from Midland and Grand Rapids-based crust-metal outfit Dakhma.

Metal Nite Vol. II begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, May 17 at the Trumbullplex; 4210 Trumbull Ave., Detroit; Suggested $10 donation.
