Lily Allen is going to give birth to heavy metal music.

The pop star is in the final stages of her pregnancy and is preparing for the arrival of her second child with her husband Sam Cooper.

Lily has revealed her spouse has been busy this week creating a compilation of tracks by the now defunct thrash metal band Pantera to listen to while in labour.

She wrote on her Twitter account: ''My husband is currently making me a Pantera mix cd to take to the birthing suite. #cute (sic)''

Pantera's songs include many raucous highlights such as 'Mouth For War', 'By Demons Be Driven', 'Good Friends and a Bottle of Pills', 'Use My Third Arm' and 'Death Rattle'.

Lily - who already has a 13-month-old daughter, Ethel, with Sam - is determined to take it easy while she is waiting for her new arrival.

However, her relaxing routine was interrupted today (04.01.13) when she reached for a sweet and discovered a tin of empty wrappers.

She revealed on Twitter: ''Which heathen put wrappers back in the quality street tin ? (sic)''
