In terms of both touring acts stopping through and depth of field in the local scene (and sub-scenes), the Central Florida metal movement is in a place of rude health. And coming on the heels of the recent Central Florida Black and Death Metal Attack, the two-day Central Florida Metal Fest is as good and loud a brief on the scene as any, boasting 18 local acts crammed into the Haven on Friday and Saturday night. More recognizable names include Demonfuck and buzzy mainstays Meka Nism. Expect a packed program of death, thrash, speed and metalcore. Bring earplugs.

6 p.m. Friday-Saturday, March 1-2 | The Haven, 6700 Aloma Ave., Winter Park | 407-673-2712 | thehavenrocks.com | $10-$20
