While Breakdown continued as a band without them, Anthony Comunale, formerly of Token Entry, was recruited on vocals and Mike Sentkiewitz, formerly of Sick Of It All, on guitar to round out the Raw Deal line-up. The band then recorded a demo cassette and set about playing at various venues in New York, most notably at CBGB's which was home to many hardcore punk acts at the time, including Agnostic Front, Warzone, Sick Of It All, Gorilla Biscuits, and Murphy's Law. They also created a second demo which remained uncirculated because, after a show at the Ritz Theatre in New York City, they were signed to the In Effect Records label, a part of Relativity Records, with a view to recording their first full-length album. Mike Sentkiewitz left the band and they were forced to change their name to Killing Time after legal action was threatened by a heavy metal band of the same name.

Killing Time went on to record two full lengths, three EPs and to appear on a few compilations. The Raw Deal demo was reissued by Dead Serious Recordings in 2005 as a 7". 2) (Jim Robins-London, UK) is known for having a sound that is completely his own.
