    For a Metallica-like sound--

    High(Treble) ---- 8-10

    Mids ----- 2

    Low(Bass) ----- 8-10

    For a Gothenburg (Melodic Death Metal)

    High(Treble) ----- 2

    Mid ----- 8

    Low(Bass) ----- 2

    Adjust Gain/Distortion as necessary

    Use the bridge pickup

    Yeah...that amp is not the best and does not give you any options as far as tones....I suggest looking for a better amp, or even some of the Amp Modellers like Line 6 has....good stuff

    I also was going to suggest getting an EQ pedal, but its not worth it with that amp....definately get something besides that amp.
