cuz ppl hate how power metal they are cuz they think its "gay" or w.e, which is immature and dirogitory
Well it depends on your amp, if you use the settings that slaytanic suggested on a Fender bassman you'll end up sounding more like Rory Gallagher (for his thrid wave settings at least).
Turn the bass all the way down, and the mids to about half. Mess with treble and gain to find your sweet spot.
