Default Can a LES PAUL do metal?

Hello everybody, I'm playing a Fender style guitar for the last 11 years. I was thinking to buy a guitar that could play harder with humbuckers and all, and then I found this Epiphone LES PAUL SPECIAL one. Now, I know this is a cheap guitar, but i'm not asking about its quality,
I'm asking if it's strong enough to play metal riffs..?

Zakk Wylde and John Sykes say yes.

If you can amplify and distort it, it can do metal.
