This format is used in Fury of the Furries for music. It is a modified version of the MOD music format using FM instruments rather than samples. The instruments are simple described in terms of the register settings for an OPL chip synthesizer on an Adlib or Soundblaster card.

The file has 6 MOD channels, and a further 5 channels devoted to just percussion, these oddities mean that it is unlikely that there are any MOD file players or tools which can handle this format.

Most MOD players expect PCM samples for the instrument sounds, but the S3M Format used by Scream Tracker 3 has the option to handle this kind of OPL-FM instrument.

2 music files are provided for each stage of the game, The game menu allows you to choose between 'fun' or 'classical' and this determines which of the music files is used for each stage.
