Metal grinding isn't good. Find out what is making that noise and I think you have your problem. Might your torque convertor or maybe the exhaust is loose and rusted?

Yes I sounds like the torque converter in the transmission is staying locked in or broken motor mounts letting the engine slam back and forth.
