Check the crankshaft pulley hasn’t come loose and isn’t wobbling about. This is the main large external pulley that drives the fan belt, alternator etc. If you think it’s an internal noise, like worn big-end bearings ; remove the oil filter and open it up to see if there's any metal parts in there.
