I wouldn't call Led Zeppelin or Deep Purple metal, in fact, even Black Sabbath didn't get tagged with the "heavy metal" label until after Judas Priest came along and turned it into a legit genre. Both Zep and DP certainly had a big influence on early heavy metal, but there's no way in hell that they were more influential to heavy metal than Black Sabbath. Perhaps more diverse and consistent, but not nearly as heavy or directly influential.
