weird sound.. can anyone help?

I tried posting a voice file of it but it would work.. it sounds like a squealingish type sound, almost like belts but im almost 100% sure its not a belt. I have no ac compressor and it started off kinda quiet and has been getting worse and worse. It also seems louder when the car has been ran for a while. Maybe metal on metal kind of sound. Idk.... i know its hard to help with out hearing it and ill tey to post a video soon, but any ideas as what i could look at would help. Maybe the water pump or timing belt???

Yes i have ps. It works fine but i guess it could be that. Will it hurt to unhook the belt for a little and drive around? Like it wont mess up my rack will it? If i dont loop the lines?
