Bermuda Triangle is the eighth studio album by Buckethead. The album is primarily an electronica-based 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]
