Doubting Thomas is an industrial band formed by two members of Skinny Puppy: cEvin Key and the late Dwayne Goettel. 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.
Key and Goettel began recording together in 1987. As Doubting Thomas they released an album and an EP in 1991. 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. Father Don't Cry was extended with additional material recorded between 1987 and 1994.

- 1991 album The Infidel: composed 1987–1990. Released on the WaxTrax! Record Label.
