Remember, though, that it's the area between the low boom in the kick and the chug of the guitars that's missing. Don't be afraid of distortion on the bass. In this genre especially, it can be your best friend by giving you a bit of fuzz right in the range you need. Just cranking up the bass if it's all an octave lower than that will still sound like the low mids have been scooped out.
Since the rest of the sound is distorted anyway, a fairly distorted and somewhat fuzzy bass will not only fill in the frequency gap, but fit right in aesthetically.
