Trouble with the audio sample?

Eureka has its own exclusive background theme, originally translated "Forbidden Land" in the Original Sound Version, but was retconned as "Forbidden Land Eureka" (禁断の地エウレカ Kindan no Chi Eureka, "Forbidden Land Eureka") in the Original Soundtrack.

The Forbidden Land Eureka

The Forbidden Land Eureka was mentioned as one of the wonders in Final Fantasy Tactics. It bears the following description:

This once prosperous capital of the Kashka Dynasty was destroyed in the Cataclysm, along with the vast legacy of its royal family. It is now a necrohol, populated by spirits drawn to the shades of its past glory.
