Today, the self-titled 4th full-length album from Boston metallers Revocation has been released via Relapse Records. This is the first release to feature new bassist Brett Bamberger.

The deluxe CD and LP contain an exclusive bonus track, a cover of the Metallica classic "Dyer's Eve."

Today RevolverMag.com is hosting an exclusive premiere of Revocation's ripping rendition of this Metallica track. Check it out below.

Revocation's new album is also streaming in full at this location. The band recently completed work on a video for "Invidious." The video was shot by David Brodsky (Municipal Waste, Whitechapel, Kylesa) at a sold out hometown show. The clip will receive its premiere in the coming weeks.

I don’t care what anyone says…this song takes skills to play.
I honestly didn’t think Revo would do it justice (pun intended)
But they did, vocals sound like a cross between Newsted and Hetfield…when Het sounded good.
Hmm…maybe he can retrain Het how to properly yell without sounding like a wuss.

interesting. I am more interested in hearing what this song would sound like with bass and just a different, slightly modernized sound. Goes to show how much thought goes into what a band's sound can become. I really do think ...And Justice was done right.

Arguably better than the original and I really like the original.
Brett's bass really helps thicken it up.

Great cover, but they mangled my favorite part of the song at 4:23.
