    I guess you could say smashed is a slight hyperbole, but I think howling is more a metaphor.

    It's a metaphor in general as well as anthropomorphism. The latter is when you give humans the characteristics of an animal or a God or an object. And of course, "howling" is derived from a canine creature. So, I would call either the aforementioned term or "anthropomorphic metaphor" if you wish.
