Toy Called God is a groove Metal band from Brentwood California that mixes crushing distortion, great hooks and an amazing ability to make your head bang involuntarily. The band was started when Tyson Cliff, Patrick Donovan, Zack Cliff and Mike Rukavina met at Zack's house for the first time. The four then placed an ad for a bassist, and soon Dustin Phillips was added to the Toy Called God mix. Soon after Mike was dismissed from the lineup. TCG released the demo "Only One Menace" in Jan 2011. We went onto win William May's Rock N Roll Pages', Band Of The Year, Best New Band, Song of the Year, Guitarist of the Year behind that demo and a relentless schedule of shows and a strong marketing campaign in 2011. The band released our Debut CD August 5th 2012 with Kill Devil Hill in Oakland California. The band would release the Only One Menace video soon thereafter. Having played shows all over the west coast as well as well other places, the band won Top Overall Honors in the 2013 Project Independent contest and will be playing dates on the Project Independent Tour in 2014. Radio Riff also voted Only One Menace from the band's debut album Song Of The Year "Riffie" award for 2013. Since inception the band has developed relationships with and endorses and recommends, Fireplant Guitars, Warwick Basses, HomeWrecker Pickups, Steve Clayton Picks, Pick Caddy, Soul Tone Cymbals and Sure Fuck Cologne.
