In 2007 KÄLTEIDOTIE was founded by Brian Damage while working on some tracks for a synthpop project. Some ideas turned out to be too hard for the project but they where worth keeping. The idea of starting an oldschool ebm project was there for years and with the old tunes that Brian kept in his basement, it seemed to be the right time to pick up some old ideas, mix them with the latest tunes and finally come up with something.

After some changes in the way KÄLTEIDIOTIE should sound like the tracks BRAINDEAD and SEXY KALASCHNIKOW where brought to light in spring 2009. Later on this year ELECTRO AGGRESSION RECORDS discovered the tracks and invited KÄLTEIDIOTIE to join the OSE 4cd box with an exclusive track, so KÄLTEIDIOTIE contributed with OLD SCHOOL ADDICTS.
