The Candlelight Years is an Opeth box set compiling their first three albums Orchid, Morningrise, and My Arms, Your Hearse, originally released on Candlelight Records.[1] Although the albums have been released (and even re-released) before, this was the first time they have been collected in one set. It also marks the first time the albums were released in Japan.

The box set was released on June 28, 2008, and is presented in fold-out digipak packaging. This edition was limited to 2000 copies. The set was re-released on August 25, 2009, in a standard 3-disc jewel casing.
