What can i say about EarthQuake VI but in generaly the whole EarthQuake series is that it is just another Thunderdome compilation like many others from back then ( a hundreds or thousands hardcore/gabber) got easily pressed in the 90's , just for XTC users to buy their so called new materials which wasn't at all . With many Hardcore compilations there were some that only made the B-Sides and that is for the EarthQuake series only B-sides . Not that it is bad but ID&T society tought all the teenage youngsters from that era ( their parents ) were milk cows to buy shitty compilations. Can name a few Rave Massacre, Blue Bulls, Ravers Night, Earthquake , Hellbound, Hellraider , Terrordrome 1,2,3&4 ( from Mokum) ,etc.... They all were indentical to what Thunderdome offered on their compilations , even some tracks on Thunderdome were B-sides or even unknown artist that only produced 1 track for Thunderdome . All in all Earthquake nevers hooked me at all ( it was just another hardcore compilation we have seen many times in that era ) guess i got bored back then don't know .....Being older now i know how stupid i was like many of my age back then to have bought with blind eyes so many Hardcore CD's that had the same tracks stupid it is being young lol .....of course Hardcore will never die!! But nowadays Hardcore is different and has lost many emotions and the new materials from back then , nowadays all is easy with computer programms .......

From this compilation only, without still knowing the other issues i have to say that hardcore isn't just thunderdome.

The earthquake series lasted only for 7 issues (i think) and in this particular number 6 we have tracks that could easily fit in any thunderdome compilations. I found myself exciting listening to this album. Just contains typical thunderdome classics altough in different remixes like the Omar fuk it up kid, Put your hands up, The beast, perhaps something like "radio version" ?

Anyway, i liked almost all of the tracks. Give it a try as an alternative compilation to thunderdome.

In my opinion the best volume from this defunct series. Whilst the previous volumes (except number 1 which was released under another label) seemed to showcase mainly B-sides and remixes of big hardcore anthems on the Thunderdome series together with tracks from the many sub-labels ID&T had back in the days, this volume 6 is so good that it could have been a released as a Thunderdome! There is no track which bores me really and no filler tracks for sure!
