Sounds like it might be the Alternator... Have someone start the car while you are under the hood listening for bearing noise from the Alt... Or anywhere else (water pump, steering pump... Etc...)
But sounds most likely the alternator !!

Good luck

Sounds to me like your Catalyic Converter or the heat shield is rattling....

Does it go away after the car warms up?

Have you run over any bodies lately? :)

i only notice it during slow speeds, like when im goin in and out of my development, the sounds tends to be lighter when im coming home and the sound exists in other places other than just my driveway, and its just as i hit the gas pedal wheni release it the sound ceases......
