If you ask any metal fan who was more influential budgie or priest you will get the answer

Priest were developing a metal sound , budgie were influenced by led zep , who were not metal at all

Sabbath and Priest were metal bands , budgie , uriah heap , UFO , purple etc were led zep , rock bands

Sabbath and Priest were unique bands like Metallica, maiden etc were there because of them , not budgie

You can tell me what influential metal bands you saw in your youth and we can discuss if they were in fact heavy metal or rock

There is a big difference
