Some metals are compounds and some are not.

Aluminum, Iron, Zinc, Copper,  and any other metal which you can find on the periodic table is not a compound because it contains only a single element.

Metals which do not appear on the periodic table are compounds because they contain more than one element. For example Brass is composed of Copper and Zinc and Steel is composed of Iron and Carbon which makes them compounds.
