Formed in 1997 in Topeka, Kansas by guitarists Paul Ryan and Jeremy Turner (the former not to be confused with the politician of the same name, obviously), the band quickly picked up Clint Appelhanz (bass) and Mark Manning (vocals), along with George Fluke (drums) shortly after. This lineup would go on to release a demo, though Fluke and Appelhanz left soon after and were replaced by John Longstreth and [[Music/CephalicCarnage Doug Williams]], respectively. This lineup was the one that gained them a contract with Relapse Records and released their self-titled debut; in the time between their debut and their second album, Manning and Williams left and were replaced by James Lee and Mike Flores. For a while after, the band continued to go through numerous lineup changes, though things finally settled down after Lee left; as of now, the lineup consists of Ryan, Flores, and Longstreth, along with Jason Keyser of Skinless fame on vocals.

* StartMyOwn: Unmerciful was started by Clint Appelhanz; while James King was a co-founder, he doesn't count because he hadn't yet even joined Origin at that time. Said band is also notorious for being where departing Origin members tend to end up (and occasionally even current, as John Longstreth did drums on the new album and is currently a full member even though he can't really tour with them).

Subverted with Crator, as it was just a studio project that John and Jason started with [[Music/{{Gorguts}} Colin Marston]] and Jeff Liefer (Tentacles) that eventually wound up turning into a ''very'' occasional live act just by circumstance.

* {{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.
