Actually, it’s playing through a blown microphone. The sound pressure levels in a rock concert are so high that very few microphones can be used in the primary sound field – the audience. Electret, the microphone type most likely in your personal recorder, isn’t one of them.
When a speaker blows, the middle, the voice coil goes too far in and out for the support structure and the fiber cone turns into waste paper. Electret microphones have two metal plates that move in time to the music. If they move too far, they touch and that’s the end of the show. There are no tools to bring you back from that.
I wasn’t able to listen to the clip, but I may not need to. Does it have cracking and crunching in time to the bass notes and terrific fuzz distortion in the voices? I wonder if the band knows that the chance of anybody walking away from the concert with a good recording is zero and that’s why they allow it.

No, not really. More like to much bass.
If it’s just too much bass, you may be able to go a long way with the equalizer.
The center line in the equalizer tool is a rubber band and you can grab and push it around. This is a tool I “made” to lower the air conditioning rumble in a live performance…
It has the same effect as a commercial microphone filter which is where I got the shape of the curve from. Each of those dots is a rubber band point and I moved them all manually. It’s all experimental.
There is also a “Tone Control” tool you can download and I need to go look for that…
Here it is…
