    The cambelt/roller/tensioner/waterpump possibly, best to rule them out one at a time.

    When you take it into the garage let the mechanic here the 'rubbing' noise once the cam belt done then just ask them to start the engine before they put the aux belt back on to see if the noise is still there.

    metallic buzzing noise could be the starter not properly disengaging.

    Does the noise stop when you press the clutch down?
