It doesn't sound to me like a cracked flexplate but I guess that's a possibility.... or loose flexplate bolts. As other have said, it sounds more like valvetrain to me.
Sounds deeper and not as high pitched as rockers or pushrods to me. I'm in the line of thinking of the loose or broken flex plate. Also look for the flexplate hitting the torque converter cover (inspection cover). Quick 4 bolt check to rule these out. Good luck
