21 Immigrant Song - Led Zeppelin

Wikipedia says it's viking metal - zxm

I used to think wikipedia is always right.But now I think they are not always not right - zxm

Again, NOT metal.

@zxm - many parts of the wiki articles on metal are awful. Viking metal is very close to black metal. This is correct: "Viking metal is a style of heavy metal music with origins in black metal and Nordic folk music".
