Established in New York in 1988 and formerly known as Raw Deal, KILLING TIME creates a sound that is an awesome batch of crunching riffs, intense drumming, and one of the most legendary voices in the worldwide hardcore scene.
Original Breakdown members (Carl, Rich, and Drago) combined with Token Entry vocalist (Anthony) and formed KILLING TIME, who soon took the hardcore scene by storm when their now classic Brightside record first came out. It was not long before they were influencing a whole new generation of hardcore fans and bands. Powerfully combining classic NYHC with Metal and Punk, the five-piece (Anthony Comunale -Vocals, Carl Porcaro -Guitar, Anthony Drago -Drums, Rich McLoughlin -Guitar, Chris Skowronski -Bass) have been creating some of the most uniquely aggressive music in the New York Hardcore scene for more than twenty years now.
Building on the strength of their live shows and first two full-length releases (1989's Brightside and 1996's The Method), KILLING TIME cemented themselves as a leader amongst the NYHC scene. They gained the respect of thousands and were the band that raised the bar for worldwide hardcore music.

Having picked up the pace by playing out more in recent years, KILLING TIME felt it was time to return to their original practice garage (where they had written their 1988 demo) to write some new material. This eventually led them to the studio to record 12 new songs, which is now the new release Three Steps Back. Call it Hardcore, Metal, or Punk, KILLING TIME'S release on Dead City is hard-hitting guitars, amazing riffs and intelligent lyrics covering a wide range of subjects and features the four original KILLING TIME (Raw Deal) members. This is NYHC. This is KILLING TIME!
