Bermuda Triangle is the eighth studio album by Buckethead, and is more or less an electronica tinged collaboration with Extrakd, who also produced and mixed the album.[5]

The album has been described as an "instrumental underground hip-hop/electro-funk fantasia"[6] and "snippets of blazing metal, washes of delayed patterns, relaxed lines matched with stuttering drums, and vice versa",[7] dealing with several Bermuda Triangle incidents and other sea/sailor related themes.

The album was recorded on a portable multi-track recorder.[8]

Track listing[edit]

It is unclear from the album information who wrote the tracks, but it is assumed to be a mixture of Buckethead and Extrakd.
