We want to vent about what we love.

Tonitruale is an online platform for passionate people. We aim to give a legitimate platform to young people from all over the world and let their creativity roam free. 

We want to write endless articles about that one time where we discovered our new favorite band in an underground bar. We want to write about what we felt when we watched an old Mugler runway show. We want to talk about the music that raised us. We want to scream our favorite lyrics out loud and post pictures of Stevie Nick's marvelous style. We want to hold people accountable and point out the flaws in both industries and we want to do it with humor and a journalistic approach.
