* {{Grindcore}}: They've dabbled in this with "Committed" (a noisegrind track), "Banishing Illusion", and "Redistribution of Filth", and Paul is a huge fan of the genre.

Added DiffLines:

* DrowningMySorrows: This is what got James Lee thrown out. Chronically depressed for pretty much his entire run with the band, Lee's self-medicating got more and more out of hand, and it was a combination of extremely heavy drinking, drug usage, and an apparent refusal to get help that finally led Paul Ryan to say "enough is enough" and dismiss Lee. Thankfully for Lee, he wound up getting some much-needed help and [[EarnYourHappyEnding is apparently doing much better now]].

* HeyItsThatGuy: Northeasterners (since Albany is about an hour from the westernmost portion of Massachusetts, and they used to play there regularly) and particularly knowledgeable brutal death fans will recognize Jason from his days in Mucopus, and brutal death fans as a whole will ''definitely'' recognize him from his run with Music/{{Skinless}}.



* OneOfUs: Everyone in the band, particularly John and Jason, with the latter having actually linked to this very page on the band's Facebook profile at one point.



* ThePeteBest: Fluke played on one EP, left the band, and more or less disappeared from the music business in general. He's still apparently friends with the band, however.



* PromotedFanboy: Jeremy Turner briefly played for Music/CannibalCorpse when Jack Owen left and they weren't able to find a full-time replacement fast enough.

* InTheStyleOf: "Redistribution of Filth" was Paul's love letter to Music/NapalmDeath.



* OutOfGenreExperience: ''Omnipresent'' has "Redistribution of Filth", which is a thrashy hardcore track with absolutely no focus on technicality.

Added DiffLines:

* LeadDrummer: John Longstreth. Part of it is his frightening technical prowess, part of it is just how many well-loved bands he's been a part of.

* AllDrummersAreAnimals: Sort of. Longstreth is known for his machine-like precision live, but his rather... unusual facial expressions have become well-known.
* BadassBookworm: John Longstreth is one of the fastest and most technically-skilled drummers in metal, but he's also a jazz musician with decades of experience and a highly-skilled Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner. Jason, meanwhile, has a degree in anthropology and has been part of multiple digs as part of his day job.
* [[DeathMetal Brutal Death Metal]]: Obviously.

* MinisculeRocking: Most of the material off their first few albums was in the two-minute range, while "Purgatory" and "Banishing Illusion" (both off of Entity) are under two minutes.

** ''Omnipresent'' has more prominent grindcore, hardcore, and mathcore influences and is just distinctly less overtly technical and more experimental in general.

* SignatureStyle: ''Absurdly'' fast (270+ BPM is common) material with extremely complex tremolo riffs and "laser beam" sweeps, along with extremely fast and frequently odd-timed blastbeats and double bass, as well as plenty of fills and jazzy flourishes. Basswork frequently consists of extremely fast sweeping and tapping, while vocals make heavy use of MotorMouth and frequently switch between high shrieks, low grunts, and a mid-ranged roar.

* StartMyOwn: Unmerciful was started by at least one ex-Origin member; while the band's [[RevolvingDoorBand frequent turnover]] means that it's difficult to know who exactly formed it, Clint Appelhanz has been documented as a founding member, and it's likely that there was at least one other founder who got their start in Origin.

* AchievementInIgnorance: Mike developed his signature bass style through something akin to this. Having grown up playing traditional Mexican music, his father would regularly take picks away from him, forcing him to use his fingers. When he started playing bass, he used his fingers to emulate using a pick instead of plucking like most fingerstyle bassists; the "ignorance" part comes from the fact that, as someone who was completely self-taught and had never taken a lesson in his life, there was no one to tell him that his technique was essentially ''completely wrong''. It was through not having anyone there to tell him that he wasn't playing correctly that he developed his one-of-a-kind style and became the widely celebrated player that he is.
