If Your Uncle Jack Helped You Off An Elephant, Would You Help Your Uncle Jack Off An Elephant?
Sometimes, I like to buy a book on CD and listen to it, while reading music.
a riff doesn't need to be slow and scary to be metal. of course a lot of metal riffs are as you described. metal has evolved in a thousand different directions since 1969.
but what is a fact here is that very slow, very downtuned, heavy as hell and evil sounding riffs are characteristic only of music that is metal, and no one had made one before that song. nothing zeppelin did became a staple to the genre, unless you think they invented playing at volume.
plus they're missing the aesthetic i mentioned earlier, which is integral. they were an influence but not the jumping off point.
and with that i'm gonna duck out of this conversation
And for the record, Zeppelin wasn't just louder; they were faster, meaner and more aggressive than any 'rock' to that point.

Zep = Blues for me.
Sabbath = Metal.
When I think Zep, I think sex.
When I think Sabbath, I think something something devil, something black stuff.
Ya, I know. Just what comes to mind is all.
