2:30 p.m., State Fairgrounds. $35 adv., $40 d.o.s.

Back in May, 100.3 FM “The Edge” dubbed Edgefest 4, which featured the likes of Slipknot and Staind, “the biggest party of the year.” Rain made it more like “the wettest party of the year.” So, just a few short months later, the radio station is back with Edgefest 5, “the redemption.” Some heavyweights in the metal genre fill the bill. Korn's catalogue boasts nine consecutive Top 10 album debuts. Mudvayne's technical “math metal” has crossed boundaries not unlike one of its main sources of inspiration, King Crimson. Fronted by the baddest guitarist Ozzy's employed since Randy Rhodes, Zakk Wylde's Black Label Society has delivered Southern-fried blistering rock for a decade and counting. “Evil disco” industrial metal heavyweights Static X return soon after its May Village gig, along with Bury Your Dead and award-winning deathcore masters Suicide Silence. An additional six bands will be featured on a second stage — Dark From Day One, Bombay Black, Wishtribe, Burn Halo, Wasting Days and Since October. Should be intense.
