the sound of my harddisk.

Anyone knows if it's something bad (probably)

My harddisk is making a buzzing sound like a bumblebee, highly annoying... anyone know more about this strange sound?

Noise is a bad thing in most cases. You may be about to lose your drive. :(

Try to use the hardware maker recommended diagnostic tool.

I'd open the drive up and rig a bypass circuit from the actuator arm to diode 3 on the actuator axis, using a 2 ohm resistor, this will make the spindle revolve at 92.8%, but should solve any buzzing.

Mind you, your data will be fuccked - so I'd get another drive instead :(
