On March 6, 2015, we were shocked to learn that one of our own, the bright, talented and young Hann Ng, had been killed in a traffic accident in his home country of Malaysia. We would like to send out deepest and sincerest condolences to all of Hann’s family and friends.
On this page we pay tribute to some of his work with Metal-Rules.com by featuring some of his words and photos.
Woodside, Queens-native goth-pagan metal band IMBOLG draws their name from a pagan holiday (also known as Candlemas) that takes place in late winter in anticipation of spring.

Appropriately, IMBOLG are planning a select east coast dates this winter, leading the charge into the impending spring season. These events include a performance in July at the annual Witchsfest in New York City, in addition to a performance at the City of Dark Angels Annual Crow Party, which features a live appearance by actor Laurence Mason, best known for his roles in The Crow as “Tin Tin” and also on the new television series Gotham.
