two things:

double stops: play a power chord like 022

remove the root giving you -22 - play these two strings. the higher note is the root.

double stopped powerchords (my name): play a power chord like 022

remove the 5th, on the middle string. a very metal chord. - 002

i think he just said "not powerchords"

well, try "chugging" (downpicking or just alternate picking the open 6th string) in between little fills...you can play melodic figures over a moving chugged bassline - children of bodom does this a lot

also, try chords using the tritone (diminished 5th, augmented 4th) like diminished chords...also try extended chords like the maj7, dom7, add 13, the possibilities are endless...with the right amount of creativity, you can make an abundance of things sound metal
