Comment (by pneuman):


 I hadn't actually listened to the sample until just now -- I can
 understand your confusion! Here it is, in context -- it's the first track
 on this album:


 They've tagged their album "ambient drone", "harsh noise", etc. so I can
 only assume that how it sounds when played as a regular WAV is exactly
 what it's meant to sound like. That's definitely how the streaming MP3 on
 our site sounds, and it's likely that the band and/or label have previewed
 the stream and found no cause for concern.
