Picks for Tremolo Picking

I am considering purchasing new picks, but am unsure of what to get.  What kind of picks are best for black metal tremolo picking?

Dunlop Tortex (standard shape) are my go-to, the orange ones if I'm doing a lot of tremolo picking, the (slightly thicker) yellow ones if I'm playing thicker strings or want a beefier attack. I know people who like their picks a lot thicker and prefer the more pointy ones, though - it comes down to technique, developed through practice. Like the old saying goes, "we shape our tools, and they, in turn, shape us."
