Živa sila is an album by Serbian noise-rock band Klopka Za Pionira, released in 2011 (see 2011 in music) on the Ne-ton independent label. Klopka Za Pionira were invited by the organizers of the Koperground festival (held in Koper, Slovenia) to play at their 2010 edition. In addition, they were offered time at a local studio to compose and record a couple of new songs. The result is this album.The band went in an incomplete line-up without the keyboard player Đurađ Šimić and the drummer Relja Ilić. They held two concerts in Slovenia in that line-up, performing live songs joined on-stage by their sound engineer Stefan Malešević, with whom they have been cooperating for a while. He also contributed with various instruments to this album's recording. Živa sila features four lengthy songs with extensive lyrics and one very long instrumental improvisation as a bonus track. The sound has been compared to their previous album and some of the reviewers see it as a continuation of the sound they developed on Dodole, although the songs are lengthier and more loosely arranged, the lyrics are more wordy and the singing style is leaning more towards spoken-word and recitation.Although the recording was finished in August 2010, the album wasn't published until early 2011 due to various organization and production problems.
