Past members cEvin Key, Dwayne Goettel

Doubting Thomas is an industrial band formed by two members of Skinny Puppy: cEvin Key and the late Dwayne Goettel.[1][2] Although considered a Skinny Puppy side project, nearly all the group's music is instrumental. The band shares its name with an American roots band, to whom they have no relation.[3]


Key and Goettel began recording together in 1987. As Doubting Thomas they released an album and an EP in 1991.[4] The duo continued to record occasionally until 1994; Goettel died in 1995.

The album, The infidel, and the EP Father Don't Cry were re-released as a two disc set, first as a limited edition in 2007, and again in 2013.[5] Father Don't Cry was extended with additional material recorded between 1987 and 1994.[6]

Several other Doubting Thomas songs were included in compilations.


  1. 1991 album The Infidel: composed 1987–1990. Released on the WaxTrax! Record Label.[7]
