 In 1998, Ben decided to take the project a step further by performing as a live act and a Metropolis band was formed. This originally comprised Adam Maslowski on bass and Rachel Enticknap on vocals, and Rachel was later replaced by Batalion D'​Amour vocalist, Ania Zachar and then K-Nitrate guitarist Joanna Theobald. Metropolis did a couple of gigs at The Victoria Inn in Derby and then moved down to London and played all the usual rock and goth venues, including The Camden Underworld, The Devonshire Arms, The Red Eye, The Dublin Castle, Gossips, and The Hope & Anchor. During this time, the band gigged with Needleye, Interlock, Jesus Fix, The Faces of Sarah, K-Nitrate, and Angelwhore among others. In 1998, Ben decided to take the project a step further by performing as a live act and a Metropolis band was formed.

-In 1999, the band recorded a cassette EP called //Only Yours//, which featured the tracks "​Understand Me," "Only Yours,"​ and a cover of "My Favourite Game" by The Cardigans. Rachel Enticknap wrote the lyrics on the first two tracks, while Ben wrote the music. Metropolis was finally disbanded by Ben in 2001 when he realised that most people find industrial prog rock about as interesting as a Jim Davidson video marathon.+In 1999, the band recorded a cassette EP called //Only Yours//, which featured the tracks "​Understand Me," "Only Yours,"​ and a cover of "My Favourite Game" by The Cardigans.
